Bug Description

Investigating the bug of https://forum.kicad.info/t/before-giving-up-on-kicad-one-last-attempt-erc-misery/15933/46 also brought a second problem to light.

There is either something wrong with that project that only 32 bit versions find or 32 bit versions have a problem with timestamps created by 64 bit versions.

Error message of 32 bit version:

Error loading schematic file “E:\Mes documents\KiCad_v5\MouseOleum IR board SHIELD\MouseOleum IR board SHIELD.sch”.
invalid hexadecimal number in input/source
“E:\Mes documents\KiCad_v5\MouseOleum IR board SHIELD\MouseOleum IR board SHIELD.sch”
line 7277, offset 6


Line 7277 of the file is

U 1 0 8860D03359D6C4F2

which is part of the component

It might be that even 64 bit eeschema has problems with such timestamps and that this is the reason for the connected bugreport.

The user created a new schematic where they do not experience the same trouble. The main noticeable difference is the timestamps in that new schematic are 8 hex digits (=32 bit) long instead of 16 digits (=64 bits).
