A bug in Mac OS version?


This is a rather curious bug that I noticed after I upgraded to 5.2. Of
course this may not be a bug but if I am being really stupid, please let
me know.

IDL> print, !version
{ PowerMac MacOS MacOS 5.2 Oct 30 1998}
IDL> print, '0000FF'x
IDL> print, '00FF00'x
IDL> print, 'FF0000'x

Shouldn't '00FF00'x be equivalent to 65280? Is this behavior also repeated
on other platforms?
