Bug Description

Binary package hint: httpfs2

I think there's a 64-bit but in httpfs2. I was trying to access a 8GM virtual machine image and failing, but tracked the problem down to a return value being converted from a size_t to an int and inverting the return value.

I agree that ideally this should be fixed upstream.
Nevertheless this has not happened yet (additionally today I tried to contact the author but his mail is bouncing...)

On the other hand, the patch by Tim Potter is so extremely simple; it will not break anything now nor in the future
