Serhiy: the issue should now be fixed.

I finally understand why I was so sure that Apple's code serialised large positive numbers as negative numbers: due to a bug in PyObjC large positive numbers end up as NSNumber values that are interpreted as negative values.

The patch tweaks the test generator to do the right thing by explicitly creating the NSNumber value instead of relying on PyObjC's automatic conversion. 

Now I just have to hunt down this bug in PyObjC :-)
