Sorry, I wasn't clear:  I wasn't complaining about test_b1.py (it is
fine and needs no changes AFAIAC), I just described what happened, and
therefore I post this to clear things up.

I will post a report or patch to SF for structmodule.c (np_void_p and
nu_void_p ignore alignment issues).

Thanks for replying, Tim.
