I think I'm going to fix this a different way; the bug is caused by a 
change from fpc to objfpc mode, which caused all integers to become 
suddenly 32 bits.

However, arrays of integers are used a lot in the code, so this 
unnecessarily increases the memory requirements on the paszlib package. 
To undo this all integer usage would need to be converted to smallint.
The best solution is imo to switch it back to fpc mode, as the bug that 
originally resulted in the switch to objfpc mode is no longer there.
