Yes, without optimization the total data layout may differ.
The code plays tricks with homegrown allocation, packing together various
structs and strings in a single allocation, i.e. a few lines before
the code you cited:

    cp = (char *) item + sizeof(struct cache_item);
    newpw = (struct passwd *) cp;

(though unless strange optimization options are in place this should not
cause misalignement at first glance)
