Wait a minute... I looked at your patch again, and if I'm not mistaken
it has the same problem as the original code: you can't ensure that
both arguments to scm_logand are fixnums.  You can guarantee that they
would fit within the RANGE of a fixnum, but that's depending on
scm_ash to return a fixnum result for a bignum arg just because it
"could" (i.e. the result would fit), and that's pretty
dubious.. certainly not guaranteed.

Am I misinterpreting your patch?  I *am* very tired.
