sure, somehow i lost this call during rewriting this lines multiple times,..
i should have looked into my diff myself (-;
so thanks for doing it for me, Alina!

im meant shifting 32 bits of a 32 bit data type is not very useful, as it
makes no sense, because you can just use
x=0 instead of using (and failing) x =x<<32;
but sure, obviously it would be better if  x << 32 would be 0 instead of x
