Maximum uptime 497 days?

By accident I happen to come across this remarkable limit of
uptime registration for FreeBSD systems. After 497 days, the
timer jumps to zero again.

497 days is less than a 1.5 years !

Has this been fixed in newer versions of FreeBSD (stable and/or
current) ? Or is there a hardware limitation (CPU?) that does
not allow this?

Just wondering.
