I believe they go into the moderator queue.

Blech, thanks for tracking this down.  There is an outstanding PR that 
this happens with some Solaris compiler too, for which nobody has worked 
out a way to prevent inlining.

So I'd be inclined to bite the bullet and backport the rewritten shmcb 
from the trunk, which should avoid these alignment issues forever more.

Can you try the attached?
