This is going to fail big time. 'hyper' is 64-bit in size, where
as long is 32-bit. Any RPC calls which user hyper will crash and
burn if you make this change.

What errors do you get if you don't make this change ? There may
be better ways to provide compatability.

There wre two bugs in the remoteAuthenticate method in libvirt 0.4.0 which
can cause crashes. I'd recommend testing again with libvirt from the latest
CVS checkout - its pretty likely that'll fix your problem.
