GDB didn't help very much, so i started cutting out code until it worked. I
found that it wasn't any amount of SDL or C coding that provided the seg
fault, it was a parameter sent to the linker. The -lpthreads sent to the
linker caused a seg fault. Now I would like to know what this flag does, and
if removing it will introduce any roadblocks for normal development? The
lpthreads flag was a standard flag for gcc from the SDL library.
