When I encountered storage corruption issues in my programs, 90% of the time
it was a memcpy that was not carefully bounded. Other 10% it was an
uninitialized variable of some sorts, being used as if it was initialized.

Maybe that helps narrow down the suspect list.

I am using C for obvious reason. I know it. I also know half a dozen other
languages (starting from Fortran, PL/I and Assembler), and RPG is not among
them. I don't see much reason to study one more language just to slove this
problem.

Actually I started already rewriting API-s to use user space and thje
results are very very good.

I of course agree with Simon, when he says, that if adding a printf makes
program work, there is a memory problem somewhere. But the same applies to
debug mode. But this does not make me happy :-)

So I saw switching to user space as a possible solution - and it happened to
be pretty straightforward and efficient...
