Following the code further along, I am storing the COMP to disk... if I
change to INT64, it is not storing the same value as the COMP field was.
Any suggestions?

Also, this part of the project is for dBase.com and Visual FoxPro
compatibility. So, I cannot go off reservation. Why exactly is FPC WIN64
making all these changes to primitive types?
