I once fixed a bug in a very popular application, it produced occasional bus errors on the
S390 architecture. It turned out to be due to a piece of code of the form "buffer + len".
The C standard requires that you be able to create pointers in that form pointing to any
element in the allocated length, plus a single entry past the end. It does not guarantee that
you can even compute the address of a pointer that lies outside this range. "ptr + int"
calculation itself caused the bus error when the pointer lay near the end of the segment.
