Well, "opad" and other nearby variables were properly aligned - however,
my testing revealed that the problem was in fact alignment-related.
Specifically, it appears that Cygwin does not guarantee the alignment
for variables declared "static", such as "crypt_key" in hmacMD5_fmt.c.
I sent a patch that works around this, as well as fixes some related
bugs that got triggered by the workaround, to SmarTeam Support and
Random Intentions for testing.  The patch is somewhat large, so I am not
posting it in here.  It will be obsoleted by the next jumbo patch update
