I don't know how I didn't realize this, but I was using a static 
variable in a while loop only thinking of it in scope of the while loop. 
You got me thinking about it when you suggested the global variables not 
being re-initialized. I hate that I didn't notice it earlier but I'm 
glad it wasn't a complicated issue.
