$ gotip version

There's a debug flag in bexport.go

// NOTE: This flag is the first flag to enable if importing dies because of
// (suspected) format errors, and whenever a change is made to the format.
const debugFormat = false // default: false

but it seems to be broken. Setting it to true and then running make.bash gives:

I'll conservatively flag this Go 1.9 in case it implies a larger problem.

Minor discrepancy in redundant code used for debugging. Does not affect anything else but will fix.
