The problem is that compiliing some ocaml source files using camlp4o

I attached such a source file to my previous email. If that
attachment didn't make it to the list, it is the file sqlite.ml from
To reproduce the problem, compile the file with the command ``ocamlc
-pp camlp4o sqlite.ml''. The failure I see is the message ``Fatal
error: exception Failure("input_value: integer too large")'' and no
.cmo file produced. This only happens if /tmp is mounted in text
mode. If it is mounted in binary mode then the compilation completes
