Thanks for bringing my attention to this problem again, and for the review.

Using PyLong_FromLong doesn't make a difference at all, if you look into
the ConvParam code.

The problem is that the patch changes the behaviour of the
'POINTER(...).from_param' methods, so I'm unsure if it can be applied
to 2.6 (or even 2.5).  Opinions?

The patch is missing a 'Py_INCREF(value)' before the 'return value;',
but this is a minor point.

It could (on 32-bit systems), although I'm not sure if there is code
that does.
