What's the reason for this change of type?

I was asked to do it on the list... the original patch I sent was triggered by gcc8 warnings and just casted it away. But the comment was that as an int, it could return negative error codes, so better to change them all.

It thereby became something in the way of a refactor rather than a gcc 8 fix any more.
