Just a quick thanks to all those on the net who posted and mailed answers
to my question.  It is now apparent that in a sense automatic variables are
"illegal" stack references which the system stretches the stack to honor up
to some limit.  I now note that the straw that broke the camel's back, so to
speak, was the write() call made in the program (that is, if I did not use
any of the locations in humongous[] and didn't call any functions [how boring]
I was safe).
