thanks - I think it is possible to devise a check for side-effects
by temporarily defining it to call a function with the two values.
Compilers warn about that.

For example, if c is U+4E08, isbackspace(c) should return 0, but it returns 1.

CharOf(c) discards higher bits, then vlCTYPE looks only most lower 8-bits.
istype(m,c) works if c is a ascii charcter.

This patch might have side effects, cause c is evaluated twice.
