Thanks Lennart.  I'll use the patch.  
As an aside and just because inquiring minds want to know... :-)
What is, in fact, being pointed to (at) with an incompatible pointer
type?  I'm really just a simple database programmer, but in my 
experience in that field all kinds of weird stuff would be the 
result of using such.  Are these offending functions not actually 
being used in the wd driver and that's why my disks continue 
working?  Or is the compiler even better than I could imagine?!
