previous references:

it's the lines that have type 'char' instead of 'char *' (presuming that's OK)
that get it wrong in the generated C output

I've lost my previous post about this, where I diggied in much further than
the above two messages, but I couldn't find it in typemap

 968: char
              B::MAGIC mg
1008: char
              B::PVLV  sv
1162: char
              B::IO    io

This only happens under -DDEBUGGING

AIX is still smoking, but if you want the specific output in B.c for any of
these three, I'll stop it.
