Anyway, the behaviour is correct. But ok, it's "strange" because 
unexpected. You have to understand the fact the long=>int conversion 
is manual :-/ Decimal.__int__ might force return int(result) at the 
end to avoid problem with -sys.maxint, but is it really important? I 
don't think so. Python3 doesn't have this problem ;-)
