  That's pretty nasty!  Good detective work.

  Here's another nasty one that I discovered about a year ago.  Run this
  from the QB environment, and everything looks good.  Now compile it
  and see what happens!

  DECLARE SUB sub1 (a, b, c, d)
  a = 1
  b = 2
  c = 3
  d = 4
  CALL sub1(a, b, c, d)

  SUB sub1 (a, b, c, d)
    PRINT a, b, c, d
    PRINT a, b, c, d
    PRINT a, b, c, d
    PRINT a, b, c, d
