  You ever think of checking for buffer overflows? like in the make_corpse()
function,  that usually causes faulty information in GDB.  Don't know why,
but Buffer overflows do that.  heh. i had a buffer overflow one time
in a page_string() function, and GDB said it crashed in the
specials() function.  Go figure.  anyway, check for possible buffer
overflow there in the make_corpse() function.  you may have put
MAX_INPUT_LENGTH (256) instead of  MAX_STRING_LENGTH (8192) for the buffer,
and you are overwriting it.

anyway, that's my 2 cents.
