I've tried step2vpl on the free wordsearch lessonmaker step files and it gives lots of lines 
the same. stepdump works ok. Could you try that and let me know if it works.
It is suspicious though that the file has a different name.
Also, there is a perl STEP reader here http://home1.gte.net/~kbrannen/other.htm that would 
be worth trying as well until sword can cope with the files.
