Follow-up Comment #3, bug #17851 (project rdiff-backup):

This is quite clearly a Python bug. chown takes a uid_t and fstat returns a
uid_t -- both are defined as an unsigned int on 32-bit and 64-bit Linux.
Python, however, uses a *signed* int which is the source of the bug.

It happens that the bug is being hit for users because RHEL assigns the
nfsnobody user a uid and gid greater than 2^31.
