Here are the modifications that this function needs in order to work
correctly:

{

/*
Because the original function was only sending Heads of type List,
We can simply pass MLPutRealArray a NULL pointer for the heads
argument and MathLink will send the head List for each level of the
array.
*/

double a[3][3];
a[0][0] = cos(theta);
a[0][1] = sin(theta);
a[0][2] = 0;
a[1][0] = - sin(theta);
a[1][1] = cos(theta);
a[1][2] = 0;
a[2][0] = 0;
a[2][1] = 0;
a[2][2] = 1;

long *dims, depth;

/*
The array is only depth 2.  The original version told MLPutRealArray
that
the data array 'a' had a depth of 3.   MLPutRealArray tried to send
the extra dimension
which didn't actually exist which lead to the crash.
*/

dims = new long[2];
dims[0] = 3;
dims[1] = 3;
MLPutRealArray(link, *a, dims, (char **)0, 2);
}
