This was the issue and your instruction solved it, thanks!  I have no real need for the bbs rng so went back to mersenne.

Did you try to set the random number generator to Blum, Blum and Shub ? If this is the case, starting gnubg-cli and doing:
set rng mersenne (or any other but bbs)
save settings
should fix the "poisoning" of your settings, and avoid the issue as long as you don't try to use the bbs rng until a new release of gnubg is available.

If this is indeed the problem you face and you have a specific interest in this rng I could build a version from the current source without the bug and make it available.
