I am working with the MPC8260, and I recall that when using the FCC, 
buffers and/or buffer descriptors are required to have specific alignments 
(I think 32-byte, but I am not sure).  I don't know if the MPC850 has the 
same restrictions, or if this alignment has anything to do with the 
alignment error you are reporting, but it is something to check into.
