Buck & Brad,

Thanks for your help on this.  It was a stupid error.  The return pointer was 
in a data structure which I missed and used the data structure name.  Your keen 
eyes picked out the missing "S" which I totally missed.  The data structure and 
pointer had similar names.  I saw the program was returning RtnPtrMbrLst and 
assumed it was a pointer.  Bad assumption.  Should have used the sub-field 
PtrMbrLst.  Thanks for the help.

Are these fields part of a data structure, or should they really be 
standalone?  In any event, I'm not having a problem at v4r1 and 
v4r2...  Here's my test; perhaps you're trying something very 
different.
