I think this bug is invalid:

byte should get sign extended as it is a signed value (ubyte is unsigned).
char is not technically a number so I'm not sure what should happen when it is
cast to an int. (or short, or long, etc.) When it is cast to a large char
(wchar or dchar) it should be converted to the equivalent value there (which
bitwise is IIRC the same as a unsigned cast from a ubyte to ushort or uint)
based on that the cast is correct in both cases.

I;m marking this as invalid because one cases is invalid and the other probably
