I use the dos2unix utility on the pqact.conf every few times I edit it with vim

A blank nonempty line in pqact.conf causes pqact to skip silently the rest of 
the file. Example (using vim's :set list):

NGRID^I^(HIN[B-X][0-9][0-9]) (KWNH) (..)(..)(..)$
^IFILE^I-overwrite -log -close 

The NGRID entry and anything that follows will not be processed. Should the 
last line in function pal_line in palt.c be

return len > 0 ? len : -2;

If there is a character to unget then the pointer is not at the end of the file.
