Binary compare failing in SUUpdater parameterizedFeedURL method #278

This line of code in parameterizedFeedURL fails for me (line 4800;

sendingSystemProfile &= (-[lastSubmitDate timeIntervalSincenow] >= oneWeek);

This is always NO for me even when sendingSystemProfile is YES and lastSubmitDate is distandPast. Turns out the problem is the binary compare &=. If I break out the compare against oneWeek into a separate BOOL say:

BOOL timeLapsed = (-[lastSubmitDate timeIntervalSincenow] >= oneWeek);

and then change the logic to be:

sendSystemProfile = sendSystemProfile && timeLapsed;

it works ok. I've had this issue before in C code where the binary compare is not reliable. You need to use the Boolean compare.
