Heh, this also confuses cppcheck as well. rVal is an "Any" and there is
an overloaded "operator >>=" which operates on that "Any" and nTemp. So
its not anything to do with bit shifting. Read it like...


Now, if >>= fails it leaves nTemp untouched. So the general fix is
indeed to initialize nTemp to 0 to clear the warning.
