Karen,

The last platform it was on was 32 bit where long int was indeed 4 bytes / 32 bits.  But on the new platform "long int" is 8 bytes / 64 bits.  So maybe that's the problem if, as you say, INTBND is designed to only write 4 bytes but there's an 8 byte value on hand.  I'll try correcting our local definition to use an actual 32 bit value and see if that solves the problem.

Or you can just call:

memset( <var_name> , 0, sizeof( <var_name> ) );

Thank you.
