Simon: THANK YOU!!! I had looked at the setjmp.S file, but it looked
like it indicated an offset of 4 (which is the default).  I tried it
with the offset at 2 and VOILA! It works great.

How did you determine that the offset was 2??  looking at setjmp.S, I
        movl    8(%edx),%esp

The offsets range up to 20, and I know the entire setjmp buffer
(long)10, so I figured each offset equated to .5 long = offset 4.

If you could explain this to me, I'd appreciate it, as I seem to be
experiencing a distinct numbness of the cranium in regards to this situation.

Tim: Can we get this merged into the distribution as a setting for 

Thanks to everyone for your responses.
