Question about slight deviations when using integer division with large integers.

Why are the following two similar prints slightly different and how fix?
>>> x = 0x739ad43ed636
>>> print(x + (-x) // 2048)
>>> print(x - x // 2048)
I'm working in an area where such deviations matter. It would nice to understand what is happening.
Any help greatly appreciated.
