  That's bad.  That's very bad.  It's the ASCII string "sql_",
interpreted as a pointer on an x86 machine.  No wonder it crashes.

  The short answer is that there appears to be some memory corruption.
Can you print out the contents of "sqlsocket", too?  Both the
structure contents, and the *hex* contents of that area of memory.

  It looks like the sqlsocket pointer that's being passed is bad.
