Feature Detector corrupts KeyPoint vector in OpenCV3.0 using MSVC 14: _BIG_ALLOCATION_ALIGNMENT Assertion message

Hi there,

I am using OpenCV 3.0 with the latest Visual C++ (version 14) and Win10. When calling the detect() method of a feature detector, detection works fine but if the KeyPoint vector goes out of scope, the program crashes with the following assertion:

File: c:\program files (x86)\microsoft visual studio 14.0\vc\include\xmemory0
Line: 106

Expression: "(_Ptr_user & (_BIG_ALLOCATION_ALIGNMENT - 1)) == 0" && 0

If I comment out the detector->detect() part the assertion is gone.

I have extracted a small example to demonstrate what happens :

#include "opencv2/imgcodecs.hpp"
#include "opencv2/features2d/features2d.hpp"
#include <conio.h>
#include <iostream>
#include <vector>

using namespace cv;
using namespace std;

int main(void)
    Mat img(imread("lena.jpg", 1));  //Load grayscale image.
    Ptr<FeatureDetector> detector(FastFeatureDetector::create());
    vector<KeyPoint> features;

    detector->detect(img, features); 

    cout << features.size() << " features detected. Press return to crash :)" << endl;

    cout << getBuildInformation();

    //... and crash
    return 0;

Here is the output of the above program (I've removed some parts):

3752 features detected. Press return to crash :)

The problem is internal realocation of vector data in

detector->detect(img, features);

which does not retain the correct alignment of data (for me it was 32 -bit), so Visual dealoc cast assertion when deleting such vector. I solved the problem (for OpenCV 2.4.13 ) by reservation of vector size to prevent realocation. For example:

vector<KeyPoint> features;
detector->detect(img, features);

I had the same problem - same compiler, same OS, same failed assertion in an x64 build. Upgrading to OpenCV 3.1 solved the problem for me.

Same problem here with Win 10, MSVC 14 and OpenCV 2.4.13 on a 32 bit build using CascadeClassifier on some images.
