Problem conclusion

  • The compiler has been corrected so that these DEFAULT statements
    don't mess with thesymbol table info generated for STRUCT types.
    Also, while fixing this problem, it was found that incorrect
    debug info was also generated for arraysof struct types - that
    problem has also been fixed
