Don't worry, it's never gonna happen. A new clientid is typically issued
once/mount and this happens after 2**32 of them. (ie 136 years at an
average rate of 1/sec)

Why did I even code it? Who knows. Maybe I just wanted to document in
the comment that it wasn't a concern, as above.

Have fun, rick
