When doing some types of lease processing (such as saving the lease time information in the memfile) we may exceed the max limit of time_t on a 32 bit OS. This ticket is for going through the code to find and fix any of those items.

We may elect to reject the ticket if we decide that running on such systems is not a high enough priority. It also may be deferred for a while as currently it only becomes a problem if somebody is using very long leases (> 20 years).
