C++ Constructor not executed on 9p9215

I have ported C++ code from the 7520 to the 9215. The class constructor code is not being executed, so I have to add kludges to set variables after main() has been entered. I am using ESP 7.5.

Question 1: If I set a breakpoint in a constructor, will the code halt if the line is executed?
Question 2: Is there a setting I need to change or some change needed in NCC_INIT.c to make sure the class constructors are executed?
