 Your fix is obviously correct. Looking at that code I'm
 getting the impression however that there is some potential
 for integer overflow which might be worth looking at:
 It seems to be common (according to google hits) to set
 shadowMax or shadowExpire to "99999" to express "unused".
 On 32-bit systems, this would already overflow an int/long
 if multiplied with secs/day.
 Do you think it is safe to treat everything larger
 than 24855 as 0?
