On Linux I noticed the following complaint while doing some valgrind
testing:

==18040== Thread 6:
==18040== Source and destination overlap in memcpy(0xf3f3f04, 0xf3f3f08, 52)
==18040==    at 0x4C2CFA0: memcpy@@GLIBC_2.14 (in
/usr/lib/valgrind/vgpreload_memcheck-amd64-linux.so)

==18040==    by 0x5560E99: start_thread (pthread_create.c:308)

This patch fixes the problem.
