Byte addressable data not working

The kernel below executes correctly when d_odata and d_idata point to int. However, if I change them to point to char the data doesn't get copied over. I can see that only 1 every 4 bytes is being copied but the rest is left untouched. It seems as if byte addressing was not working.


#pragma OPENCL EXTENSION cl_khr_byte_addressable_store : enable

__kernel void testKernel(__global uchar *d_odata, __global uchar *d_idata, int numElements)
    int tid = get_global_id(0);
    int numThreads = get_global_size(0);

    for (int pos = tid ; pos < numElements ; pos += numThreads)
        d_odata[pos] = d_idata[pos];


I am using ATI Stream SDK 2.1.

Thank you.
