The code I'm interested in is:

struct xxx { void *p; int a,b,c,d; double x,y; };
struct foo { struct xxx *p; int e,f,g; };
struct xxx s;
struct foo bar = { s }; /*** should be &s ***/

(I don't see any int pointers there.)

Do you see the error on the last line?
What error message would you expect a good compiler to output?
