Very strange. What is your compiler version (first line of cl /?)?

'H' isn't exactly right, since these are DWORDs, so they
are unsigned longs, not unsigned ints (so 'k' should be right),
however, the actually bug apparently is elsewhere - something
like memory corruption. Can you find out what the value of
szCSDVersion is (e.g. by putting a printf right before that)?
