32-bit (signed) timestamps will not be enough to count the number of seconds
since the "beginning of time" (that's 1970-01-01 at least as far as
Unix is concerned :-)) 

This is a difficult compatibility problem which is being worked on on
many fronts and I think there have been discussions about it on this

But read the doc string, experiment on your system and see if you can
live with the consequences of choosing the "other" value for the
