so the bugreport is invalid (but should not be closed as such
until it has been understood why).

to "effect" a "no change", the variable that requires "not to be changed"

1) be passed in as an INPUT parameter
2) not be modified by the pseudocode
3) be passed OUT as a return result.

the "no change" is achieved by simply not making any modifications to the
local variable (parameter)

the return result **WILL** get written (caveats: VLi=0) but the contents
will **HAPPEN** to be indentical... resulting in "the appearance of no
change having taken place"

CPU efficiency of the Simulator is *not* a high priority here.
