Gee, that message looks familiar. ;-)

The warning was a concession that I implemented after discussions with
BDE.  The way we want to go for now is to have the entire system
uid_t-clean (currently unsigned 32-bit) but to issue warnings from
appropriate utilities when values that can't be represented by an
unsigned short.

Absolutely.  If you have the time, that'd be great!
