c++.beta - Beta 8.35.8 - redefinition of static

You fixed the problem on the minimal sample program, which was a
complete program. However, compiling the offending module from the
real library gives a syntax error. See the following:

------------------------8< beg >8------------------------
/* t2.c
*     test sqlite style function table
*/
typedef struct B B;
typedef struct flist flist;
typedef struct flist2 flist2;

struct flist   {
   int (*f1)(B*);
   };

struct B   {
   flist*   flp;
   };

static flist funList;

void initB( B* b )
   {
   b->flp = &funList;
   showB(b);
   }

int f1( B* b )
   {
   return 0;
   }

static flist funList = { f1 };
------------------------8< end >8------------------------

E>dmc -c t2.c
t2.c(30) : Error: no definition for static 'funList'
--- errorlevel 1

I forgot to mention a simple workaround: The syntax error doesn't
occur if there's a valid reference to 'funList' after the
redefinition. 

Since this code occurs in library module, a neat workaround is to put
a function like this one at the end of the source file:

static void f() { flist* f = &funList; }
