Using fflash.exe for the 56f8013, loading multiple s files

I am trying to program a serial number in an unused page of flash on the 56f8013. I've tried the fflash (command line) version and I get an error message:

"This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact support...."

Loading an S file created by the MW tools works just fine. Now I want to use a second file to store a serial number (arbitrary string) in high flash memory at address 0x1f80:

S0030000FC
S1051F80AA5561
S9030156A5

I'm just putting 0xAA55 @ 0x1f80. According to the flash programmer user guide, I should be able the put this filename in the command line and the appropriate page should be programmed, right? The fflash program does not complain about the s file except for the above "helpful" message.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Mark
