Right I see your point.

And yes, also for RC_HANDLE the error handling was done incorrectly.  It
should be masked like you said with 0xff to catch error number and the F
flag (bit 7).

As it is format zero error code it should be fine to check without any
mask.

Thanks for noting this. It is easy to shoot yourself into foot when
there's lot of stuff packed :-)
