I think I have hit a similar case with the following code:

{$mode objfpc}{$H+}
program test; { FPC 2.0.4}
    w: Word;
    w:= 5555;
    if lo(w) <> lo(w + (5 - 5)) then
       writeln('This is a little bit unexpected');

What would you suggest as a "workaround"? Using the mod operator?

Regards, Bernd.
