Hi, Terry, apologies for not replying before, I've had the lurgy.

You've got a crash there, which I really need to debug. But due to you 
having the files that make it crash I'll have to get you to do it :)

If you're up for some fairly complex commands, here's the first set of 

If any of these steps fail, let me know, you might not have 'gdb' 
installed for example.

With the build that you built above, (with the --enable-debug).

# Change to the rpcemu directory
cd rpcemu

# Load rpcemu into the debugger
gdb ./rpcemu

# At this point some (c) message go past and you end up at a (gdb) prompt
# start the program at the prompt with the command 'run'
(gdb) run

# This should start rpcemu, at this point do the same things that made it 
# go wrong before. This should crash it again
# this *should* return you back to the (gdb) prompt again, now for the 
# getting info bit.
(gdb) backtrace

# This should generate a list of lines, please post all lines from gdb 
# between (gdb) run and the end please

That should do for a start ....
