20071210-1.c    void **
950613-1.c      long
pr29128.c       long *
920826-1.c      char
920831-1.c      char
991213-3.c      int (*)()
pr28489.c       void (*)()
pr27863.c       long
label1.C        void **  
label2.C        void **  

I'd say using void ** instead of void * is more wrong than using long.
