Hmm weird, must be a bug either in the exporter or in RCKs code.

One for Codetapper and RCK to figure out.

Both of those mag reviews point to the same datormagazin sleepwalker aga review

Hooooo HOL bug

It's a HOL importer bug. I'm sure other mad coders know the relevance of a number like 32767 ($7fff) - the highest positive integer you can create with 15 bits.

Therefore I would guess HOL is using a small datatype to store the review IDs, the number is bigger than 2^16 and it's just truncating the number to $7fff. The bug should fix itself when the field size is increased by RCK!
