    (gdb) print d
    (gdb) print d->character
    (gdb) print *d
    (gdb) print *d->character

Things to look for: NULL pointers (if d or d->character point to 0x0 then
it hasn't been set to anything since it was CREATE()'d [1]) and memory
overflows (if you have excessively high numbers for things that shouldn't
be so high, etc.).  This will at least help you identify all the symptoms,
which can help in identifying their cause.
