Discussion:

Paragraph 6 says:

... obtained by successive invocations of g, ...

We recommend instead:

... obtained by taking successive invocations of g mod 2**32, ...

as the context seems to require only 32-bit quantities be used here.

Proposed resolution:

Berlin: N1932 adopts the proposed resultion: see 26.3.3.4/7. Moved to Ready.
