Comment (by nickm):

 > Files we generate here can't be, since they had to fit in process memory
 to get written, but I guess you can make up some weird case where we also
 do the scanning for existing files thing, and the user switches between
 running a 32-bit and a 64-bit Tor on the same directory. I'll switch it to
 uint64_t, though, just to be safe.

 Also there's the case where we get some number of objects that fit into
 address space one at a time, but when you add them up, the sum overflows.

 >What does this mean?
