Which one?

Note that this is a bus error, not a segfault. On PPC, the most common
reason for a bus error is unaligned access (e.g. trying to read a
32-bit word from a memory address which isn't a multiple of 4).

x86 allows unaligned access, so this kind of bug normally only gets
discovered on Macs.
