Can you give an example of OS where pid_t, gid_t or uid_t type are longer than
the long type?
(If I remember correctly, the "identifier" of a Windows process is an addresse,
so it has a size of sizeof(void*), whereas long can be smaller on 64 bit
Windows. But this issue looks to be specific to UNIX.)
