Problem with Sleep

I believe that I may have isolated a bug in sleep() on the Linux
platform. This problem can be demonstrated by executing the command:


which returns immediately. The command:


sleeps as expected.

I have isolated this to the unix sleep() function. It appears that on
Linux the parameter is being treated internally as a signed number.

Solaris is even more inconsistent, correctly sleeping for 1009317314 or
lower but incorrectly when passed 1009317315 or higher.

Can you suggest where the most appropriate location is to bring up this issue?
