Hi Matt,

Everything I've tried that seems to successfully copy values within the cython code still gives me empty strings by the time it reaches server.c.  I even tried using c functions like strcpy, but they seem to cause other memory errors.  I've scrubbed the page below for clues, but doing things as they suggest just ends up with the empty string.
I still can't figure out why the string values make it just fine to client.c, but not server.c.

I think I'm ready to throw in the towel.  If someone else has time to take a look, I would appreciate it.  This is the last holdup for a yt_astro_analysis release.  I'm also fine with just dropping support for this.  It has never worked in Python 3, but no one has ever raised the issue, so maybe it's not worth it.

Hi Britton,

This is very strange.  Is there any way that you can manually set
these, by making them public or making them operations that set global
