These things only happen on alpha chips (afaik, maybe someone with a PPC or
sparc running linux can confirm/deny this?), but are completely harmless.

I am not an assembler and/or alpha specialist, but these things are variables
that don't start the right boundary. The kernel intercepts them, and realigns

In an ideal world, these wouldn't happen, but they are nothing to wory about.
The programs will function normaly, and there is no security risk ...
