declaring i to be of type (unsigned-byte 33) works as does leaving out
the declaration all together. yet, (typep #xffffffff '(unsigned-byte
32)) is true. this error happens only when the count arg to ash is

according to my reading of l0-numbers.lisp (bignum-ashift-right
#xffffffff 8) is what is being called, but calling bignum-ashift-right
directly results in no errors (and the proper result). all i've been
able to figure out is that u32-shift-right is being called with count
and not (- count) as it should be, but i don't see where the call to
u32-shift-right happens.

Ring the bells that still can ring.
Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything.
That's how the light gets in.
