'[PIC]:Strange SPI problem with PIC16F877. NEED HEL'

No one replied to my last post. I though I might try again with information
from my past week of investigation.

The specific problem is that however I initialise the MSSP, the only four
SCK pulses are sent for each byte transmitted. It appears as if it is
shifting out/in data on EVERY clock edge rather than on only the rising or
falling edges. I suspect a hardware fault in the PIC. I have tried this with
two chips (both likely to be from the same batch however), at different
clock rates. I have tied all unused pins low via resistors, and no reset or
interrupt is occurring in the middle of the transfer.

If anyone can simply confirm that I am not missing anything obvious then
that would be a great help! Or, if anyone has had similar problems, then I'd
be very happy to hear about it.

Here is the generated assembly code (I am coding in C using the C2C

.. and so forth. Code placed here DOES execute.
