Took me a while to figure out that -L was a path, and -l was the lib name
without the lib prefixed to it, I am not so good at these things.  But I am
learning quick. *chuckles*  I even grasp what a pointer is now, after two
years of coding C.  Though, I started without any previous experience, and
without any documentation, except for the comments in the code and the
Ceramic mouse site.

Well, basically; I copied a function, forgot to rename one recordset in one
place, and then referred to said recordset somewhere else, and also, even,
did a free on this recordset in a function to which it was passed.  Not
really better than being drunk.  I code better drunk. *grumbles*

I figured you didn't want to hear a long tedious explanation, and, I didn't
want to look completely stupid. ;)

Thanks for all the help!
