Still works fine here.

(On the other hand, as far as I'm concerned, the whole optimized memcpy
and related stuff is on its way out: it is being used in only one place
in the whole plugin and I'm told that the performance of memcpy doesn't
really matter even there.  If someone has something against it being
removed, now would be a good time to yell... :)
