Let there be light:

  char *foo[] != char foo[][]

char *e2BIG[ARG_MAX + 1] = {
        [0 ... ARG_MAX] = "helloword"
};

        for (ind = 0; ind < ARG_MAX + 1; ind++)
                strcpy(e2BIG[ind], "helloword");

is different from

char *e2BIG[ARG_MAX + 1] = {
        [0 ... ARG_MAX] = "helloword"
};

The one is two dimensional array, the other an array of pointers to char.
