 Could it be that Marshal.StructureToPtr needs the same fix? I get an 
 ** ERROR **: Type Gimp.ParamData which has an [ExplicitLayout]
 attribute cannot have two fields with the same offset.
 If needed, I can provide a small testcase.

+I think managed->native marshalling of such structures makes little
+sense. The runtime marshaller will copy the values of all the fields
+into the same memory address, so that address will contain the value
+last copied there, in the original example, d_int8. Is this useful for
+some purpose ?
