You almost gave the answer in your question - the FILE_TIME is about to be
converted to a time_t greater than 2**31.
in posixmodule.c::FILE_TIME_to_time_t_nsec(), a comment says:
/* XXX Win32 supports time stamps past 2038; we currently don't */
just before the assert()...
And indeed to reproduce the same crash it is enough to call os.stat() on a
file with a creation date in 2050 for example.
