You're misunderstanding me, I meant that the first test is done AFTER the first iteration is
executed, so my fix is correct since, even if order is 0 because at least one iteration of the loop
is done, and the post decrement makes sure that the test succeeds if order was 0 going into the
loop.

Changing order to a signed long loses half of the cache entries due to the number being divided by
2.
