My code is a bit complex I rather wouldn't post it unless it's
unavoidable. All I can say now: there is no dynamic memory allocation
involved nor pointers nor anything notoriously easy to make it wrong. Only
very basic straight Pascal.
Again, the bug is platform independent. I can reproduce it on IRIX and
SuSE as well with the latest gpc-snapshot. While the same code is stable
on IRIX gpc 2.0.
