Re: [MiNT] Window with toolbar and redraw messages

Remember that the userdef code is executed by the AES. If you have lot of local data in the userdef the AES might run out of stack. It's better to allocate space for this outside the userdef code

When I did that (ub_parm pointing to a (largish) structure) the app
crashed. Once I had declared the structure outside the redrawing
function, and ub_parm simply pointed to the workstation handle, it no
longer crashed; so I figured pointing ub_parm to large structures was

But since it's just a pointer anyway I don't think it makes much of a
difference, now that I think about it. I'll need to test this more.
