This is a fairly simple C mistake.
In A, &pos refers to valid chunk of memory, thus when
jack_transport_query operates on it, it has a valid piece of memory to
In B, pos (IIRC) would be initialized to NULL as it is in the file scope.
So when you call jack_transport_query, you have provided a pointer to
NULL, where any memory access will be invalid.
If you set pos in B to be a pointer to a valid object (chunk of
memory) then it should work fine (ie refer to a global object or an
object allocated on the heap with malloc or friends).
