I tried it a few days ago, and it created decimal 81. Let me test anew...
ignatios@theory 5 % gcc -o itest itest.c -lnsl
ignatios@theory 6 % ./itest 22.214.171.124
inet_addr(126.96.36.199) = 0x3030303, 188.8.131.52
ignatios@theory 7 % ./itest 099.099.099.099
inet_addr(099.099.099.099) = 0xffffffff, 255.255.255.255
ignatios@theory 8 % uname -a
SunOS theory 5.6 Generic_105181-06 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-5_10
itest.c is the one from the PR.
