        Unix? Sounds...sorta like Sun.  You might want to use a debugger,
like gdb to get a backtrace, and then single step through your code if
it's a repeatable bug, which you indicate.  Then, add some debugging
statements in that area - like sending the values of data to a
file/screen.  Should be able to pick it up pretty quickly.
