	One possible explanation for the lead is:

	The compiler seems to want to put the result of logical expressions 
into D. Since we are dealing with addresses the simplest and most 
flexible method to load them is LEA?. Don't remember the associativity. 
Either one should be true. Though I thought the result should be 0 or !0?

	Another possible explanation:  Do any of the sister chips support lead?
