This is probably not your prob, but if you are using gcc, you need to be
aware that it automatically allocates a register for any scalar used in
a loop (such as beta).  You have to take action to prevent it from recognizing
that beta is not changing.  For an example of this, scope
where I use a pointer for all in-loop accesses to beta . . .

What I'm wondering is if gcc's messing up your assembler by using one of your
resgisters for beta, which will kind of randomly screws up your code . . .

Let me know,
