Subj: String Space Corrupt           Conf: (2) Quik_Bas
I just went through 2 days of agony writing a program that kept
giving me string space corrupt notices - sometimes the notice but
with a lockup to match! I just couldn't figure out what the problem
was. Then I remembered I had just recently configured my config.sys
file to run EMM386. I deleted EMM386 from the config.sys and ran
the program again - NO string space corrupt notices! Just to be sure
I ran it again but with EMM386 back in. Sure enough the Space
Corrupt notices returned! So I am passing this along to anyone who
is experiencing this problem or may experience it in the future.
