It's getting strange again:

I have a mp3 file, which (according to perl):

Total (Tag):1165425152    (Tag Information Length)
Total (Dec):57965714285   (Decoder Information Length)

And this is, what python has to say about it:

Total (Tag):57000000000
Total (Dec):57965714285

Oh why does perl change the variable????

57965714285 / 2^32

The number is 13 times too big to fit into a 32-bit integer. Perl's IV (integer value) is guaranteed to be as big as a pointer on your platform. If you're on a 32-bit platform, IV is 32 bits, and the 64- bit count of nanoseconds in the file is being truncated.

The GStreamer bindings will probably have to depend on Math::BigInt for these numbers.
