Same here (except the "I think this used to work") on GNU Emacs 23.3.1
x86_64-apple-darwin that is 64 bit and has also the famous time_t with
64 bits. The error reported by others comes from time_t with 32 bits.
decode-time checks for overflow of time_t before either passing it to
the system call localtime(const time_t *), or giving the error.

But since it's only a mismatch of current-time with base 1970 and
time-to-days with base 1bec, is
(decode-time (days-to-time (- (time-to-days (current-time))
(time-to-days '(0 0)))))
what you need? Why the *days* function, for some rounding?
