If the problem actually caused by gcc failing to pair all the conditionals?
Compiling with 'clazz' a compile-time constant might show things.

Or, if memcpy() is defined in a header file and uses casts to optimise
inlined copies of fixed sizes it might be that the pointer-aliasing
rules mean that the actual structure might not have been written.

A possible solution to that is an asm statement with a "memory"
constraint for the buffer areas either side of the actual copy.
