What version of Go are you using (go version)?

go1.9beta2 (also present in go1.8.3)

What operating system and processor architecture are you using (go env)?


What did you do?

package main

type T struct {
	a [1]byte
	b [2]byte

var x T

func newT() T {
	return T{[1]byte{1}, [2]byte{1,2}}

func main() {
	x.b = newT().b


What did you expect to see?

Successful execution.

What did you see instead?

main.main: main.x+1054942 is not 2-byte aligned

While not strictly a regression from the last release, this bug does cause the docker tests to fail when using go1.9beta2. I have a somewhat ugly fix, will send a CL shortly.

If this was present in Go 1.8.x, it's not a candidate for holding up Go 1.9. Sorry. But if you get a safe fix out in the next 24-48 hours, maybe, depending on reviewer feedback.

We're already a couple weeks overdue releasing the Go 1.9rc1 due to other issues.
