Found it. Maybe it is architecture or compiler dependant, and maybe my 
enclosed fix is not the ultimate solution but it works now. I only fixed 
one of the architecture-dependant sections so it is incomplete. I guess 
the same casting could be applied to the other sections but I haven't 
looked at it. I added a self-test so it's easy to try for others.
