+The program does not work because the managed prototype for the
+memmove function is incorrect. Arrays by default are marshalled as In
+arguments, meaning the changes made to the array by the unmanaged 
+function are discarded by the runtime. See:
+So the correct prototype for the memmove function might be:
+public static extern void memmove([In, Out] int[] dest, int src, int
+The reason why this worked in 0.28 was that array marshalling was not
+implemented at all, so the runtime simply passed the managed array
+to the unmanaged code, without any copying.
