Interesting, think I could have a look at your code?

Actually, I had forgotten about that:)

Yup, it was grabbing the wrong function.  I changed the name to killf(),
and did an nm on the lib to pluck EXACTLY what C++ was turning the name
into.  I now know that function is being run, but I still get coredumps
when I try to access the data...  Welp, 'tis progress nonetheless.
Thanks,  TTYL!
