Hi, Jim.
Actually there is a difference in support: it works but result is a 
little bit wrong, and it does not work and crashes. This fix is not a 
general solution for the incorrect result of the blit+aliasing, but for 
the possible crash of memcpy especially after some improvements like in 
glibc. I think this still an issue.
