Does anybody has this problem:
try doing -1e10/1 ==> error: LargeNegativeInteger doesNotUnderstand
highBit. Actually this is not the message, but it's something equivalent (I
can't check it now or here)
To fix it I needed to write:
^ self negated highBit
and change something in SmallInteger>>highBit.
I'm not sure if this is a good solution, but it seems to work for me.
BTW: Why is there a self isNegative ifTrue:  in
LargePositiveInteger>>highBit (shouldn't it be in LargeNegativeInteger?,
whithout the self isNegative..)
