I already tried -mms-bitfields vs. -mno-ms-bitfields but forgot to
mention it, sorry.
-mno-ms-bitfields is not an option at all because GTK is built with and
building Geany without leads to crashes at early startup.

Sizeof is good idea.
gcc-4.8: 84
gcc-3.4: 88

So, this supports the theory of an ABI incompatibility?
