Byte Addressable Stores seem very buggy

I'm attempting to just write a non-optimized, straight C version of a popular algorithm which unfortunatly requires byte level access.   Some accesses to the byte addressable store will cause the compiler to bail out with no error message other than Build Failed.  Other times it works just fine.  The addition of the pragma helped me get a few more, but the lack of it did not deny every byte level access.  (unaligned ones I might add.)  It looks to me like CAL was deprecated long before its time, as fighting with the OpenCL compiler shouldn't be necessary...
