good comments all. I've been around the block, so I'm certain that due to the compiler's desire to arrange things in a preferential way. I've just started digging into this code for another issue and blundered into this one. The structure is stored as a blob in the system, so I must be very, very careful in how I touch this structure. Changing any of the alignment options will surely frag stored data.

This leads me to realize that all one needs to do is change the packing on the compiler line, and the data will be trashed. Oh, but wait, it gets worse. This code base is built with two different IDEs. It's vulnerable there as well. D'Oh! | :doh: It's 8am on a Sunday, and I have a long day ahead of me.
