At this point I start to wonder which part should be changed. Is it
better to
a) cast some more, as you started to do,
b) change enums to #defines or
c) change '|' to '+'?

At any rate, you have the same problem in 5 seperate places by my
count and only changed 1 of them. Nak - in case anyone cares.
