Yes, I'm quite aware this is "contrary to usual logic" that's why I
posted in the first place.

I don't consider that I've propagated anything, these definitions exist
and have existed for some time. My intention was to highlight these
undesirable definitions so that others will not fall foul of them as I
did. While I could easily change these brain damaged definitions, I
don't have the time to fix and test any misguided logic that may
dependant on them.

I hope the original author of these definitions takes no offence, as I
feel sure that no sane 'C' programmer would have coded them arse-about-face
