I whittled it down to just over 700 lines, unfortunatly I could not get 
it any smaller as since its X11 there where many structs etc that where 
referenced in the functions.  However I got it down to 2 functions and 
the bare minimum of typedef's struct's etc.  Including removing code 
from the 2 functions.

Seems its a very complex bug however, since removinga  for loop or a 
fprintf would often make the file compile.

thanks for the pointers, hopefully this gets worked out.
