Bug 4152 is partly fixed. The compiletime error is removed. Only the
runtime overflow is left. That still needs to be decided how to handle it.
The following code also fails with an overflow

  v : cardinal;

The reason is that -1 is in fact an addition of $ffffffff resulting in the
carry flag being set and therefor an overflow.
