I think you're right. :-(
checkname(ls) changes ls->fs->f->consts and so the expression
is undefined because of this side-effect.
It seems that all C compilers we tested (and everybody else!) only get
the value of ls->fs->f->consts *after* checkname returns.
Your compiler in HPUX (which is it?) seems to get the value of ls->fs->f->consts
*before* calling checkname, which I think it can, according to ANSI C rules.
We'll look into it and fix it if it's really wrong.
