you won't be able to. the code fixed in python is duplicated in rdiff-backup's 
cmodule.c, without the fix, if HAVE_LCHOWN is defined (which it probably is in 
these cases).

to replicate the fix you mentioned at 
 you have to apply the attached patch to rdiff-backup.

this fixed the OverflowError on lchown for me.
