It took me a long time to track down, and I found the error.  I was hoping to 
be able to report a snazzy bug, but it is because I wrote to an array out of 
bounds, and I must have corrupted another variable intermittently (for the last 
several years).  I guess changing the name of the variable may have moved it in 
memory!  The code is in the ADC interrupt.

u08 lt; 
u08 ht; 
ht=inp(ADCH)& 0x03; 
if (nNextAdc==8) nNextAdc=0;

I try to store the 8 channels into an array but all 8 channels are shifted one 
index in the array when I print them out.
printf("x: %i\r\n", (int)(ADChannels[0]);

this prints out ADC channel 1 unless I subtract 1 from nNextAdc like above.

so the index 0 is ADC channel 1 instead of ADC channel 0.  So the "solution" I 
used was to write to index -1 to 7, and somehow this corrected the problem, but 
then I was also corrupting other memory I guess! :)  Any sample code that 
continously logs all 8 ADC channels to an array? (without corrupting memory!)

I have a 1 bit offset somewhere I know, but I am not sure where..
