Could this perhaps be the reason for crashes I'm experiencing? :doomthinking:

64-bit system where unaligned accesses throw a Bus Error. 4 byte alignment is by no means a safe default nowadays

I somehow suspect there aren't many people running SDL on MIPS64 systems

@fraggle hell, IIRC nowadays some SIMD requires quadword alignment

@libc The value gets overridden in almost all cases, but it's dependent on particular CPU features, and this is a non-x86 system:
hg.libsdl.org/SDL/file/29acbbb
So it probably just hasn't been tested on other CPUs at all
