I'm working on a program using FreeBSD v 1.7.

This project has been going for years and has a lot of functions calls 
some using far more arguments than these. I've never seen this error before.

I have one funct8ion that has suddenly refused to run because on the 
call I get a 'stack overflow' message.

I'm passing a pointer to a structure and then 5 ints. Everything is 
fine, but I need to pass a bit more data. If I pass a sixth int I get 
the overflow message.

I've increased the stack from the default 4096 to 20 * 1024 * 1024 
without effect.

Yours Peter Laurie

Voice messaging on both lines, but I don't often check it.
Email is more reliable.
