One this to look at is whether you have the 'misaligned access' trap
enabled.  At least some versions of gcc for arm will do 32bit reads
from misaligned addresses [1] in order to read 16bit quantities.


[1] which rotate the word so that the addressed byte ends up in the LSB
of the registers (if LE).
