The pointer is being adjusted before the constructor is

I was looking yesterday at GCC's implementation of the
C++ ABI __cxa_vec_new2() function.  There's a padding
argument that may be utilized in HP-UX aCC 6.x for some
unknown reason.

Also, I thought the allocator in _rw_dispatch(), where
the ContainerTestCaseData object is being constructed,
could play some role in all this but looks like its
only used in the test function.
