I could never get it to work no matter what I did. I do
not believe the fix about compiling with the multithreaded
switch on, because I could see what was happening in 
a debugger. (I've stated it before in great detail elsewhere,
but essentially the same data structure is being used for
both the read and write information, resulting in serious
data corruption...MT switches or no MT switches, it's just
plain broken...)

Anyway, what I wound up doing was increasing the size of
the input cache buffer, using the www library for source
input, and then I write the cache buffer to disk by 
hand using fwrite().

I hope this helps you from spending time chasing down the 
wrong solution.
