> We are printing pointers, we do and should, I think, print all their bits. It is indication that a value in an output is a pointer. When we have bad bits I prefer to have all 0s shown: 0x00100001 instead of 0x100001. And bad pattern is usually repeated: 0xbeefbeef.

0xbeef was a good pattern (and for illustration of the change), that's why it was not repeated :-).
If nobody objects, I'll make those changes, then.
