Multiple open handles?

Is it permissible to have multiple open "rcmdhandle" handles created using differing values of Alpha)? It seems to work most of the time, but occasionally, the library crashes when I have 3 or 4 open handles. When I just have one open at a time, there are no problems.

RE: SUGGEST does not maintain

SUGGEST does not maintain any internal state and everything is encapsulated into the handle that it returns. So, you can have as many open handles as you want. My guess that the reason for the crashes is probably some memory issues in your program.
