Thanks for the report!
This is a bug in the optimizer's handling of `bitwise-and`, where I
made it assume a fixnum result if either argument is a fixnum. That's
obviously not correct if the fixnum is negative. I'll push a repair.
The difference you see when running in a module is because the
optimizer constant-folds the calculation, so there's no `bitwise-and`
call left to make incorrect assumptions about.
