Thanks for finding this bug and providing all this usefull
information about it.

If we do it this way, we probably should use :
+ if (I->TotalSize >= ULONG_MAX/100)

as CurrentSize and TotalSize are defined as usigned long. ULONG_MAX
comes from limits.h and is usefull as it will take care for 64bit

I'll probably fix the problem like this:

because it will save us the additional if() statement.

Again, thanks a lot for finding this bug and your help fixing it :)
