You're caught in a feedback loop.

I would lay bets that the "poison pill" is a snippet of RTF code in
your subject file that is tricking SA/RTF into treating it as an RTF
file rather than plain text or XyWrite.  The "RTF" to RTF conversion
fails.

Try forcing a "from XyWrite" conversion with SA/RTF/NV.  It works,
right?
