Re: Oasis with 128 bit support

There is one set of flapgs you need to shift by one. Thus 'a' is defined but
unused. (I think my code has it as #define AFF_DO_NOT_USE  0

There is also a copy of circle with both of those patches already correctly
installed (without the above mentioned exception) on one of the ftp sites.
I think, can't remember now. I am working with some source
based from this copy and have had no problems.

I had a lot of problems with pl 11 and the 128 bit code a while back and
eventually gave up on it. Your crash was probably a null pointer, I was
a lot of those when I was hacking with the maual patch.
