My patch is based on V2 of my "Fix delta integer overflows" patch [also changing the variable types].

I'll post a new version fixing the *printf issues.

The patch can't be splitted without causing compile errors, if sizeof(size_t) != sizeof(ulong).
Many variables are not changed to keep the patch small.
