Good point. I should have investigated the unexpected 32-bit behaviour
on my 64-bit system more thoroughly. I knew this, though:
Unpatched sawfish: (max-width . 0)
Sawfish with my patch: (max-width . 536870911)
These results were retrieved by using this command:
sawfish-client -c '(format standard-error "Sawfish: %s\n"
(window-size-hints (select-window)))'

It seems I was (by some luck) right anyway, though, because it turns out
that ints are actually 32-bit on 64-bit systems:

$ dpkg --print-architecture

$ cat prog.c
#include <stdio.h>
int main() {
  int i;
  long l;
  char *p;
  printf("Int size: %ld\n", sizeof(i));
  printf("Long size: %ld\n", sizeof(l));
  printf("Pointer size: %ld\n", sizeof(p));
  return 0;

$ gcc -ansi -pedantic -W -Wall prog.c -o prog; ./prog
Int size: 4
Long size: 8
Pointer size: 8

From <>:
On 64-bit Linux, int is 32-bits, while long and long long are 64-bits.

So when the left-shift operation in rep_MAKE_INT() is performed on an
int, before any conversion to 64-bit, bits 31 and 30 of the value will
be discarded:

From /usr/include/X11/Xutil.h:
typedef struct {
	int max_width, max_height;
} XSizeHints;

From librep-0.90.2/src/rep_lisp.h:
#define rep_VALUE_IS_INT	2
#define rep_VALUE_INT_SHIFT	2
#define rep_MAKE_INT(x)		(((x) << rep_VALUE_INT_SHIFT) \
				 | rep_VALUE_IS_INT)

From sawfish-1.5.3/src/windows.c:
XSizeHints *hints;
