You mean it's not forcefully aligned, right? If so, I think that's 
normal since the MS ABI mandates that it is 16 byte aligned. I don't 
think Windows force aligns the stack either, it just probably doesn't 
use aligned SSE instructions in the first place (and why it mostly 
doesn't crash, though I've heard stories of it crashing when people 
misalign the stack and break the ABI).

For this patch, just for future reference, you should be using movdqu, 
which anyway it's just as fast as movdqa unless the processor is very 
old. I don't know if it's still necessary though.
