according to ais ckpt spec B.02.01 from 2005 the above call should
return ERR_INVALID_PARAM (see page 36 lines 1-5).  The reason is that
create was specified without any checkpoint creation flags.

I tested trunk without the patches from Hans and it does indeed return
INVALID_PARAM as required by the specification.  Attached is my test

Are you sure your linking to the proper library?  There really isn't any
way for the calls to return the value 0.  Make sure you don't have extra
libraries installed for sa forum and are linking to the proper

Until we resolve this issue further calls could possibly be corrupted
for some reason.

If you can alter the attached test case to generate the results you see,
I'd be happy to debug it further.

Also I posted some time ago a graphical test application (QT based)
which tests AMF and CKPT failover together.  You might take a look at
that.  If this application could be modified with your test cases it may
be useful for all.
