When treated as an unsigned 32bit value those are identical.

Guido prefers to keep Python 2.x always having signed values for the 
scattered crc functions.  We changed it for 3.0 because it makes more 
sense given that python these days no real fixed-bits numeric type.

I posted a workaround in there.  Always & the crc32() or adler32() 
return value with 0xFFFFFFFF.
