On intel, MacOS.GetCreatorAndType() returns the creator and type code with 
the wrong endianness, eg. as 'DCBA' instead of 'ABCD'.

Fixed in r68156 (including testcase). Annoyingly enough only 
GetCreatorAndType needed fixing, SetCreatorAndType already did the right 
thing (makeing the two functions inconsistent with each other).

Won't fix for earlier releases, this might break existing code.
