You're probably returning a value from work/general_work that's
greater than nouput_items.  Add an assert to you code.

Look like the old code has a flaw:

 for (int k = 0; k < noutput_items; k++){
   out_sample[k] = interp_sample;

 return k;

but modern compilers deallocate the index when the loop
is completed (one web page says), so the fix is to use:

 for (int k = 0; k < noutput_items; k++){
   out_sample[k] = interp_sample;

 return noutput_items;

In fact, modern compilers should produce an error on such code since k is used
outside of its declared scope, e.g.

cat test.c
int main() {
 for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++) {
       printf("%d\n", i);
 printf("%d\n", i);
 return 0;

gcc -o test ./test.c
test.c: In function `main':
test.c:2: error: `for' loop initial declaration used outside C99 mode

g++ -o test ./test.c
test.c: In function `int main()':
test.c:7: error: name lookup of `i' changed for new ISO `for' scoping
test.c:4: error:   using obsolete binding at `i'

gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 3.3.5 (Debian 1:3.3.5-8ubuntu2)

(the compilers I've tested, 3.3, 3.4, 4.0 all give this error.)

Now, you could pass gcc enough flags to make it accept that code (e.g. tell it
to not use C99 mode)... but you really shouldn't do that.
