Thanks. I should have done that with my patches to fix some bignum bugs.

I agree that for bignums lsh and ash should behave the same way. I can
easily belive that there are bugs in this code, as I was fighting
problems with 64bit Windows having 32bit long at the same time.

Or equivalently:
  (dotimes (i 128) (message "%d %x" i (lsh (1- (lsh -1 i)) -1)))

Yes, this is clearly not behaving correctly and needs to be fixed.
Thanks for investigating this.
