hmmm... I've only run this through the debugger once, and even then I 
just observed the ever-increasing stack size and deduced that this was 
not handled... but I guess that explains why, IIRC, I was seeing bad 
pointer references instead of NULL one's as before.

Should a +seh trace be sufficient for a meaningful investigation?  If 
so, I can whip up a quite tidy (iow, small) one, with some annotations 
describing what I'm doing with the app, and post it to the list.  

Never mind... before I bother wasting everyone's time (or even just 
yours), I'll take a closer look at this myself; maybe there's something 
obvious (or perhaps even something mildly esoteric) that I can fix, or 
at least diagnose, myself.  If not, at least some time in the debugger 
will hopefully clarify what's going on just before TSHTF, which might 
make a trace eaiser for whomever to interpret.



"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things;
the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic
feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much
worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing
to fight; nothing he cares about more than his own
personal safety; is a miserable creature who has no
chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the
exertions of better persons than himself."
