I thought maybe the gap accounted for it -- but this is already
gap-compensated, isn't it? So we have characters of size <1 byte there.
(I sort of doubt that.)

(gdb) xtype
Lisp_Symbol
(gdb) xstring
$2 = (struct Lisp_String *) 0xb81a20
There is no member named data.

Not very useful.

(gdb) print *((struct Lisp_String *) 0xb81a20)
$9 = {
  intervals = 0x98,
  u = {
    imm = {
      gcmarkbit = 1,
      immbit = 0,
      size = -40,
      size_byte = -37,
      data = 
"\204\000\000\000\000\000\"\032\270\000\000\000\000\000\362\031\270\000\000\000\000"
    },
    dat = {
      unused = 1,
      size = <error reading variable>
  }
}

Even less useful.

I'll see if I can reproduce this in an unoptimized build...
