I just checked it in the debugger, and this was with gcc 3.4.4 (mingw)... 
And the addresses were not properly aligned :( From a bit of googling, 
this seems to be a thread problem, as the gcc just maintains 16-byte 
alignment of the stack -- if the start function of the thread had 
misaligned stack,  the misalignment will be kept throughout the execution.
