The statements below have nothing to do with alignment.

I can only think of one way to interpret this.

Somewhere in the past, inc(pBoxtemplate) would have increased  
pBoxtemplate with one. Nowadays, this increases pBoxtemplate with  
sizeof(pBoxtemplate^). I don't know when this change was done though,  
but I'm quite confident it was before 1.0. If this is the behaviour  
you need, it's ok.
