 From some cursory Google searching it appears to me you could  
probably get a 64k-aligned chunk of memory on Symbian using the  
"RChunk" API, specifically by creating  a double-ended chunk and then  
adjusting its top and bottom to provide the proper size and alignment.  
I think someone familiar with Symbian development should fix this code
