Nice, thanks for that. I have plans on possibly using DBF on ARM based
systems (and adding support to tiOPF). DBF is the only "server" I know
that you can compile into FPC executables - no dependencies. Loosing
that would be a shame. I wasn't aware of the alignment bug. I don't mind
helping in solving the outstanding DBF bugs, as it will be beneficial
for my work too. I'll take a look.

Brilliant idea. Without a descent testing suite, it is hard avoiding
regression bugs.
