    Stupid!

    And it is.

    I made two stupid mistakes:

    1) I got my globals wrong and defined them as static in main.c rather than in gui/guiglb.c with extern definitions in gui/guiglb.h. How I made that mistake is unfathomable - tired old brain, I suppose.
    2) I assumed that I had put a breakpoint after the assignment loop, but what I actually did was put it elsewhere. The program stopped because I had added --g-fatal-warnings to the gdb command.

    The basic problem was that the flentry[] was supposed to be a global, but wasn't. So when it went out of context... poof!

    Fixed now

    Thanks for all your help (including john.c, but if you weren't so aggressive I might have taken more notice. For God's sake, lighten up.)

    And my apologies for having wasted your time on my stupidity.

    You are the one who started swearing when I mentioned a well-known fact.

    You are not even remotely special.
    We've seen your kind a hundred times.
    "I have a magical bug!"
    "I've done everything correctly; don't dare say I didn't!"
    "It must be the compiler!"
    If you want the truth to stand clear before you, never be for or against. - Sent-ts'an

    Normally, I wouldn't respond to this type of rant, but for the last time:

    You are not even remotely special. True - never thought any different.
    We've seen your kind a hundred times. Err - possibly, but see below.
    "I have a magical bug!". Well, it was magical to me which is why I was asking for help.
    "I've done everything correctly; don't dare say I didn't!". I thought I made it plain that I was at a complete loss and that anything I had done was up for question.
    "It must be the compiler!" I rapidly discounted that possibility and it was clutching at straws, anyway.

    Your attitude started out as rather aggressive and rapidly descended to outright abuse. I really don't understand you. Maybe you have anger management issues?

    In any event, don't bother to reply to this as I have put you on my ignore list

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
