Originally, the appendix had 12 figures, all of which typeset without a hitch. Then I tried to add three more figures one at a time, typesetting immediately upon adding each figure. Everything was OK for the first two figures, but typesetting failed when I added the third figure. The problem is not with the third figure because typesetting was OK when I commented out the second figure and  left in the third. All the figures use the same set of commands, which is a standard figure environment. The following are the commands for the third figure.
