#137: Prevent overflows in timers
 Reporter:  iulius   |      Owner:  eagle
     Type:  defect   |     Status:  new
 Priority:  low      |  Milestone:
Component:  general  |    Version:  2.5.4
 Severity:  minor    |   Keywords:
 Richard Kettlewell reports that overflows may occur in the way timers are
 currently computed.

 - OVERartcheck and OVERtime in nnrpd code
 - statistics->busy and total in backends/overchan.c
 - STATUSgettime() in innd/status.c
 - a few other uses of timeval on 32-bit platforms

 Perhaps the best approach is to use 64-bit types throughout.
