AFAIK C89 doesn't specify integer overflows:

If an exceptional condition occurs during the evaluation of an expression (that is, if the result is not mathematically defined or not in the range of representable values for its type), the behavior is undefined.

With GCC and -fwrapv integer overflow work as you have expected. But other (and mostly older) compilers can fail.
