Good to see somebody else has noticed this (and, in more places than I
did)...  I sent the following patch last February:

but nothing ever happened with it and I mostly forgot about it.  (it
was on my "Big List of Pending Patches," but i didn't make time to
ping... and it was fixed in my sources.  8-)

Maciej, do you have any other test cases that would show the problem?

I like mine, but I don't know that it's the best one in the world...
a test case that used a 'normal' 64-bit ABI would be better.  8-)
(assuming none others are fortcoming, Eric, permission to check in
that one once i verify that it still "works"?)
