From the relevant diff on Spirit-of-Oberon GitHub I'd say it must be
this change in ORB:


In RECORD ObjDesc, two INTEGER fields where changed to BYTE (class,
exno) and fields were reordered to reduce alignment overhead, saving 8
bytes in total. I did not verify, but probably this also means that
ObjDesc now fits in a smaller heap block than before.
