[xsde-users] VxWorks crashes when first starting parse

It's hard to tell from just using printfs.  We haven't looked at a stack trace yet.
It definitately is getting into the start_root_element function as it's successfully identified the root name.

Who calls the start_root_element function?

Hi Terry,

Does it occur still in the start_root_element() function or after it
has returned?

There could be multiple reasons, and it will be really hard to pin-point
the problem without a stack trace. I remember one case where the proper
floating point emulation options were not specified for the target
hardware. Similarly, the same code worked fine on other platforms.

What makes you think so?
