     I32 may not be big enough for string insert length

It isn't broken for some configurations, but here is the bisect args 
that cause it to happen, on a 32 bit Linux machine. -Doptimize=-ggdb3 -Aoptimize=-O0 -DDEBUGGING -Dusemorebits 
-Dusethreads -e 'exit -B "lib/unicore/lib/Age/"'

Many, many tests in the suite are failing.  This is the only one I bisected.
