It is now supposed to act just like non-Jumbo. No conversions, no extra 
support, no speed penalty except for a few added branches.

I had an older file with that same weird line, so updated to latest one.

The build bots just verify 32-bit builds, SIMD vs. non-SIMD and so on. 
But I did run the Test Suite manually before that. TS is just wordlist mode.
