See reader questions & answers on this topic! - Help others by sharing your knowledge
values when the callback is called?  I created a structure and used a pointer
to it as callback client data.

Answer: If your structure is declared as automatic, the callback will probably
not be executed within the structure's scope, so the pointer to the structure
will become invalid.  You can avoid this problem by declaring your structure
external or by allocating with malloc or (in C++) new.
