OK, I got similar problem on m68k. You have to check
resolveObjectFields in kaffe/kaffevm/classMethod.c and if
alignment calculation in this function is funny, you can
define new ALIGNMENT_OF_SIZE macro in 'md.h'.

You can check the result to set bp when getfield or putfield
are executed (which are handled in 'kaffe/kaffevm/kaffe.def')
by comparing,
	(void *)sp[0].v.taddr+(finfo.field)->info.boffset
and the address of field in structure.
