All is nice, but when I have -g and -fno-omit-frame-pointer added to CFLAGS, it does not crash. I hate chasing bugs like this. So, if CFLAGS contain this: -g -O2 -fno-omit-frame-pointer (works) -g -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer (Crashes) -g -fomit-frame-pointer (works, even if ONLY john.o was built this way) In all cases, LDFLAGS has -s removed, and "strip john.exe" is removed from the bottom of Makefile. However, stripping or not stripping made no difference in the crash or not crash. The crash is in ldr_load_line, when looping through the fields. It is almost like the db_options pointer points to invalid memory. Jim.
