Ha!  You may regret saying that. ;)

I've come upon another head-scratcher, which makes me think I have my C
stack set up wrongly somehow.  Any insights would be extremely groovy, as
I'm all out of ideas of what to look for.  Hopefully it's not something as
silly as last time. <_<

The gist of it is, regular local variables seem to just not work, being
unassignable -- always containing zero.  Details of some specifics of the
behavior I'm seeing are in a comment block in test.c .

However, static local variables work just fine.  I tried passing the -Cl
switch to the compiler to make all variables static, but function
parameters still don't work when I do that.  That's what leads me to
believe that I've got my C stack set up wrong.

Whee, I wish I knew what I was doing! :3

Here are some files that may be elucidating.  The POKEs around 0x310 are
just writing characters sequentially into the display memory.  Everything
is built with -t none --cpu 65816 -Osir -g.

test.c (containing main):

Thanks again.  I really appreciate the time y'all take to help!
