    I can't imagine any representation where 1410065389 is the limit of an integer. If you're using a signed 32-bit integer, the maximum is probably 2147483647.

    Sounds like you have a stranger bug. Are you allocating that much memory? Perhaps that's all that your system has free. Or maybe you have a buffer overrun somewhere, or another type of memory error. Could you post your code?
