Do you understand the problem?  It looks like a compiler bug to me.
We copy into the address of glyph_row->x and the size of the copy is
the size of glyph_row structure minus the offset of x from the
beginning.  So what is wrong with that? what am I missing?

When you say "building with checking", what do you mean, exactly?  Did
you use some non-default warning switches, and if so, which ones?

And what version of GCC is that?
