I overbooked just to test it, and used the virtual figures. IIRC it 
happened when running 5 seconds on 80 processes while three seconds just 
made it below overflow. I did the test because I thought it would be 
reasonable for the mpi patches to support lots of cores. For that matter 
I suppose running it for one minute on 8 cores would overflow just the same.

The Jumbo patches use long long's anyway so I now fixed bench.c without 
the half-assed try to keep using the int64. I just uploaded fullmpi-6 to 
the wiki. Works fine on Linux 32 and 64, I hope it works for W.A too.
