line_locate_point: 2st arg isn't a point\n - Again...

I'm so close (I think) to exporting a usable file, except I can't get the stationing into it:

      STREAM ID:Forsythe Creek
      REACH ID:2
      NODE NAME:
      BANK POSITIONS: None, None
      REACH LENGTHS: None, None, None
         6214410.26143986, 2222433.82224242
         6214375.33004066, 2222527.52281525
         6214410.26143986, 2222433.82224242, 217.22
         6214401.17927607, 2222458.18439136, 214.05
         6214391.74779828, 2222483.48354602, 212.01
         6214382.3163205, 2222508.78270069, 213.99
         6214375.33004066, 2222527.52281525, 213.99

When I try, I get:

Calculating cross-sections stationing...
InternalError("line_locate_point: 2st arg isn't a point\n",)
Process aborted!

Calculating cross-sections banks stations...

Calculating cross-sections distances to the next cross-section downstream ...

Probing DTM along XSCutLines...

And HEC-RAS crashes when I import the result and try to select Cross Sections and IB Nodes. It finds nothing for "All Rivers". If I manually select only one Reach there, the Import River: <name> and "(All Reaches)" appear, but I instantly (before any data appears) get an error dialog:
Run-time error '9':
Subscript out of range
Dismiss the error and the whole program is gone.

I found

And I did have overlapping cutlines on some kinky parts of my stream. But now I have spaced them out and verified none overlap, even at stream junctions, and I still get the errors.

I also found

Which is more like my problem, but has no answers or comments.

I don't remember seeing those errors before, but my earlier attempts made the same kind of output files with no stationing, so maybe I just missed them.

Looking at my flowpaths layer, its table is just "1, Channel, 2, Channel" - I see the LineType = Channel part, but no data there...  But it draws the stream on the map, so there must be data somewhere... 

I guess I'm rambling...  Would appreciate help with this!
