Reproduction steps:

$ python2.7 -c "import zlib;zlib.crc32('a'*(1<<31))"
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
OverflowError: size does not fit in an int

We ran into this bug in zlib.crc32 when using zipfile.writestr() with a very large string; as soon as zipfile tried to write the crc checksum, it raised this error.

Python 3 does not appear to suffer from this bug.
