[PD] Using large numbers with [text set]

The help file for [text set] instructs us to use large numbers for the second inlet (ie. 1e+006) to append a line of text. But for numbers above 1e+010, it seems to stop working, giving the error message:

text set: line number (-2147483648) < 0

I wouldn't call this much of a problem as I don't imagine that anyone needs to append more than 10,000,000,000 lines of text. But I am curious, why would this large number be interpreted as a negative?
