Thanks for the suggestiion, but the problem recurred when I tried to 
compile the original version. Something else has broken. The fact that 
the header has nothing to do with just about anything and apparently 
compiles okay with other source files is scary. I've had problems like 
this before and they seem to go away after a small unrelated change far 
removed from the problem area.
