first, get a jtag and learn to single step the code.

I suspect that you have wired a hard coded am_type at a higher level.   You
can call AMPacket.type but it will get over written later.

However, that is just a guess.   It is impossible to determine what is
going on from the little bit of information you've provide.

Seriously, what do you want from us?   How about you think to your self
what would help us help you.

What code base are you working on?

Better would be if you are based on
github://github.com/tinyos/tinyos-mainand fork so you have your own
published copy.  Then
you could push your modifications up to your public tree.   Then you could
point us at the tree along with what particular application
you were building and for what platform.

Seriously, what did you expect us to do with the little bit of information
you gave us above.

Most folks would simply ignore you.   Hopefully I'm teaching you how to
