I'm not quite sure what Jeff's point is, but if you ignore what I wrote (which was worded before I had completely understood Paul's message) the important issue here is that in the two definitions of dbr_time_double, one of them effectively uses int RISC_pad and the other long RISC_pad. One of them needs changing for CA to work properly on any architecture where
	sizeof int != sizeof long

Paul suggests using int, and has confirmed that this works. Does it need any more discussion? Granted someone should probably check the other dbr_ types too, now we know there is a potential problem. I doubt if there is anywhere else that is likely to have two definitions of the same structure as this only comes about because of the dbAccess.h/db_access.h mismatch.
