I would really like to do that, but this is a fairly
large system consisting of tens of thousands of lines
of code. Since the bug is so hard to reproduce even
with the whole system, it may take me a very long time
to get it to show up in a small sample.

I'm trying to revalidate my license for Rational
PurifyPlus and will run my program under that as soon
as possible. That should find memory problems if
that's what is causing this issue.
