Here's a tip for anyone who has to track down bugs of this nature. To
greatly speed up work, just use a binary search technique. That is, go to
the section of code that's causing problem, put a breakpoint or similiar
half-way. If it dies before that point, move it back half way, after that
point, move it forwards half way. Iterate until you find the place.

If PacMan had affected us as kids we'd be running around in
dark rooms, munching pills and listening to electronic music.
