I regret that I don't have the time to look into this. I don't understand
affix files and the endings algorithm enough right now to be able to figure
much out. Just a simple guess, though: did you try removing any old
word2root.db or root2word.db files before running htfuzzy endings? It may
be a problem with an existing database, rather than an affix file problem.
