Uhg, that is hard-to-recognize issue with typedef'ing pointers. A good reason not to do so.
gcc -Wall shows it:
typedef char *str;
typedef const char *str_const;
str s1 = strdup("a");
str_const s2 = strdup("b");
const str s3 = strdup("c"); // same as 'str const s3'
*s1 = 'x'; // OK
*s2 = 'y'; // error
*s3 = 'z'; // OK
s3 = NULL; // error, s3 is 'char * const' not a 'const char *'
That means we need an extra typedef to make use of 'const' for typedef'ed pointers. Ugly.
