It is better to define on-disk structure layout with fixed size types
only (like uint32_t or uint64_t).

To fix, you need to recognize the old style data on read and use compatibility
code, which reads it via a uint32_t and then converts to time_t.

If the fixed app has to be compatible with old binaries, you will need to do
the same for writing.
