This sounds like a compiler bug.  The ivar accesses should both be using the 
same offset variable.  Are you sure that both are being compiled with the same 
ABI?  If so, would it be possible for you to compile the relevant -gui file and 
NSThread.m with -S (produce assembly, don’t compile) and send me the resulting 
output?
