The patch is incorrect. Why do you think there is an overflow? There is 
none in the call to ParseTuple: the i argument parser expects a signed 
int*; passing a long* will break on systems where 
sizeof(int)!=sizeof(long) (such as typical 64-bit Unix).

In addition, the *actual* overflow in the current code (casting to uid_t) 
is not handled in the patch.
