Oh boy !

I have this big program that process USPS Manifests for Presorted Parcels.

It prints 3 copies of the detailed manifest (with headers, footers and summary boxes).
It also prepares a XML file for XML-to-Print to print the actual Postage Statements (test overlayed on PDF using PlanetPress)

It has been working fine since 2003.

Yesterday I made a minor change and re-compiled using Comet32.

Now, when it runs it looks like it is skipping some sub-routines. aka I am missing a summary on the 2nd & 3rd copy. The copies are run all in the same main routine and the program use GOSUBs to get to the different sections of the program.

I recompiled using Comet16 compiler and ran again. IT IS FINE !!

I have tons of GOSUB and I know I am going a couple of levels deep. There shouldn't be any orphans...

Is there a way to trace a Comet32 program and keep an eye on the GOSUB stack? I could try to put in some trace but it is a big monster....

All the test were perform on Windows 7 x64 running Comet32 2013.480. The Comet16 re-compile was on a Comet 2008.
