I believe I tried this when you suggested it previously, but can't remember
how I ran showregs, if I did at all. I assume the where command register
dump in Reporter is giving the same information.

If not how and when do I run showregs?

As you mentioned it I'm trying to see where r14 is again to see if I missed
something last time around.
