Boy, why don't you just use the regular interface?!!  Ordinary users, and=
particularly beginners, are not supposed to fiddle around with the intern=
of mpz_t objects.

Just say

=09mpz_t=09a, b;


and you're fine!  No strange results!

Since you yourself said that you are rather new to C _and_ GMP, you reall=
should _first_ get some experience with just C before exploring the GMP=20
internals.  But even so, some GMP internals are descibed in the manual.
