At line 18, a simple integer (line 25-26 shows it as int) is assigned to another simple integer (line 23-24 shows it). And bang there is some short circuit and some unrelated variable current_node is assigned some irrelevant value (line 19-20). It was NULL just 2 lines back (line 15-16). And all the pointers are distinct memory locations (line 29-35). current_node is not even a local variable passed as parameter (line 1). In fact defined as a global variable.
