Just to make sure that the problem does not lie elsewhere (?)

Emacs served well as the "small" program, and yes, HeapAlloc returned addresses that were 4-byte-aligned but not 8-byte-aligned. Fixing the alignment did make Emacs run smoothly, so alignment was indeed the problem.

I have now also tested the --with-wide-int build and it seems to work correctly as well.
