How to get the "high" Patternspecflags to work (was Problems, setting parameters for single units)

Ok. I've done this with the GlobalPatternSpec Flags as shown in the
Environmentview. Especially the COMP-Flag (16) and the
COMP_TARG_EXT_FLAG (128) set the activation of the Input-Unit to zero
(because the values are only given for comparison purpose...).
But I investigatet that the Flags are only accepted up to 8bit Values
(And so only 8 Flags). That means that the last Flag one could set is
TARG_VALUE -> the corresponding Integer 256. There are 5 more Flags
available (EXT_VALUE, TARG_EXT_VALUE, NO_UNIT_FLAG, NO_UNIT_VALUES,
NO_APPLY) but I can't set one of them because the Flag-Value is always
set to 256 (and this is TARG_VALUE). That' s a pity because the last
flags sound very interesting for the things I wanted to do.
Is there a way to get these high Flags working ?
