If the PID was bigger than the variable `most-positive-fixnum',
then that might well be the case.  If it's possible for you to
compile Emacs yourself, you can compile it as a 64-bit
executable, which would give you larger buffer sizes (and a
larger value for lisp integers), see the file etc/MACHINES for
more details on how to do this.
