 QB4.0 -> QB4.5

I need help!  I'm currently maintaining some code for a battery cycler
that controlles up to eight batteries at a time.  For the most part the
program is simple although it compiles to just over 100K.  

The problem I'm having is when it's compiled in QuickBASIC 4.0 things
stop working.  Varialbles are changed randomly  with out warning.  Most
of the variables are part of a struct or TYPE defnition.

TYPE  batbtyp
  voltage AS SINGLE
  amph AS SINGLE
  stat AS STRING * 10
  file as STRING * 8
DIM SHARED bbox(1 TO 8) AS batbtyp

While in the interperater every thing works just fine.  As soon as it's
compiled it's all screwed up.  I've been battling garbage like this ever
since I started working with it.  There is no mention of this sort of
thing in the bug list for the microsoft basics.  Has anyone experianced
anything like this using version 4.0?

I'm hoping that if I were to aquire QuickBASIC 4.5 then most of those
problems would dissapear.  These batteries need to be ready by Febuary 6
so I'm desparate.  I can't use VBDOS 1.0 because the control board
interface libraries will only work with QuickBASIC 4.x.

Does anyone out there have QB 4.5 and willing to sell!  I'll buy it
from you!  At the risk of sounding desparate; PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE!

I've noticed a problem with that on very large modules. Try breaking
it up into at least three smaller parts and using COMMON for necessary
