This is just a guess, since I didn't write the deschall client (I
only wrote an RC5 client), but the client probably uses a long or
unsigned long for the number of keys to check, so 2^32 would definitely be
out of the question, as would 2^31 if the number wasn't unsigned. (Though
why it wouldn't be unsigned, I don't know...)
