oops.. I may also need to retract my last statement on this matter...

I started to investigate and was a bit surprised at the results.

I will post later, I get to go to the dentist now, instead.

however, my $0.02 on this is limit the occassions where you have mixed
variable types.
if it's boolean, use a strict boolean test
    and stick to using either true/false or 0/1; don't mix up true/0 or
use strict string checking for strings
