Just FYI: Looks like I can repro this finally, and it also looks like at
least for me it isn't an SSE2 instruction that the issue is with.
Instead I'm getting an #UD in the middle of an instruction a few
lines down from the last SSE2 one, which suggests we're having
an issue with sizing instructions (however odd that may seem).
Now that I can repro it, at least I have something to actually
debug ...
