Thank you all for the valuable info. I have now changed everything to
use only the types from ctypes, cint for int and culong for unsigned
long. Once my tester on the other side of the atlantic wakes up I can
test it.

I did not know this.  I have read in many different places that one
should use packed (thats the reason I did it in the first place), but
I will now remove it from all my records.
