Wow, I've never actually considered using the interpreter/CLI like
that. Thank you!

I'm writing my own u_ntohl() now which checks to see if the
socket-module ntohl()-function does something with the value, and if
so reorders 0xAABBCCDD to 0xDDCCBBAA and if not it returns same value
as the one sent as argument.

This should be enough, right?


PS. Obviously I was wrong regarding ntohl() not being the source of
the error, and I'm not sure any longer how I came to the conclusion
that it wasn't.
