OK, that's pretty sure to be it. You can see in the disassembly in the PR
that it _is_ a movaps instruction causing the bus error.

The $rbp and $rsp are both 8-aligned when it bus errors. In the main
thread, the stack is 16-aligned at every call to PrintF (I'm working with
the third example program, maybe I should attach iot somewhere).
I'll get the hard numbers for you in a minute, next message.
