[REBOL] Re: callbacks

wrt the crashing, strangely, I was having problems yesterday also, I don't
know why this appeared suddenly. its possible I corrupted the version I had
been using reliably just prior to sending a strange version last week.
last week I had done tests which lasted well above 5minutes of non-stop
querying (at over 50 queries a second) and all was well, this week it seems
only your version is safe, so I'll stop trying to fix mine and use yours all
I'm just happy this whole debate ended up in exploring and fixing this
unpredictable REBOL behaviour. It seems that now, finally, we have an easy
and 100% safe way of using external data within REBOL.
I noticed in your latest version, you change the address back to 0. My
guess is this is the way rebol handles things inside, it assumes NULL * as
an unallocated struct, so the GC stops trying to free it. This was to be
my next test.
