I'm using dev-c++ version 4.9.9.2, but the same problem occurs with the stable version.

If I delete a blank line of the code, the program fails to work as it should.

With the following section:
strcpy( achPath, psDir );
strcat( achPath, "\" );

strcpy( achSrch, achPath );
strcat( achSrch, psPatt );

the program runs fine:
F:\Ls>ls_good -s "*.exe"
Ls_bad.exe
Ls_good.exe
x\xx\xxx\x.exe
y\x.exe

but if I delete the blank line:
strcpy( achPath, psDir );
strcat( achPath, "\" );
strcpy( achSrch, achPath );
strcat( achSrch, psPatt );

the program fails:
F:\Ls>ls_bad -s "*.exe"
Ls_good.exe
Ls_bad.exe
Ls.exe

Gms.

    The compiler log says (in both cases):
    Compiler: Default compiler
    Done.

    Problem solved!!

    The issue here was that the line previous to the blank line had a double slash remark (which I omitted in the example for briefness sake) that ended in a backslash:

    strcpy( achPath, psDir ); // dir\subir
    strcat( achPath, "\" ); // dir\subdir\

    Then, the real problem seems to be that the compiler does not really ignore what comes after the double slash.

    In this case, the construct "/ ... /" must be used.

    Gms.
