Not so much a screw-up as utilization of some common failures in this thread;
I made a program to show memory "graphically" by copying it to the command buffer.
You can move it forward 1 byte with A or 1024 bytes (1 kb.) with B, and show a little help info + the current location with C.
Here is a demo pic:

NEVER try this on real hardware!!!! This could potentially have problems (corrupting memory) if you are not careful (accidentally writing video memory to the hard drive)

Phewph! I did test it on real hardware, however it was an Acer laptop which refused to boot Windows anyways.
Thank you for the warning.

Some rather interesting results originating from (I assume) a faultly paging implementation, or a bug in my memcpy function :

Very interesting, gallery-worthy images! Good luck, I hope you find the source of the bug.
