I haven't hit that problem in the instance where we are using them, 
but we're zero-filling the fields, which might be the difference. 
I'd be interested in what you find out though, since we're using them 
for ids, and I'm concerned about what's going to happen when they do 
exceed 32bit limits.

I'm not sure which upsets me more: that people are so unwilling to accept
responsibility for their own actions, or that they are so eager to regulate
everyone else's.
