This might be by design. Check out include/access/htup.h and look at
how the tuple is defined. Basically, there is a struct with the
necessary header fields that is used to cast an area of memory that
has been [p]alloc'd. See heap_addheader as an example...
Note that this technique has been declared as "Bad" by the C standards
committee, but it works and there are other things more broken.
