Subject: Re: 1.7.8-jumbo-6-RC* on Mac OS X

Jim -

It's totally weird.  Turns out that, for example, opt_errors[1] (pointer
to string "Unknown option") is not valid right at main() startup, unless
I change declaration from:

static char *opt_errors[] = {


static const char * const opt_errors[] = {

I suspect that some constructor function in some library corrupts our
initialized static data.

I think I am going to release -jumbo-6 as-is, considering this a problem
in Mac OS X or in Xcode (specific versions) rather than in John. %-)

What you're observing on Cygwin is probably different.
