Stack randomization makes BUGGY programs non-deterministic. But then, so does running the program on a different platform. I don't understand your complaint. If you're that worried, just turn randomization off on your development machine.
Aren't canaries a relatively large performance hit? I've written some inner loops that would definitely notice the time needed to generate the canary and check it every time you call a subroutine.
