Location of process in RAM?

Would one expect a program to load at a different
absolute RAM address when executed from an xterm
command line if one or more shells were started
in that xterm before the program.

I.e., would running:
 $ sh
 $ myprogram

load the code at a different RAM location than
running just:
 $ myprogram

(I'm questioning whether a program segfault on
one particular user's system could be due to a
bad or intermittant RAM memory cell.)
