Error: Could not retrieve catalog from remote server: integer 4294967294 too big to convert to `int'

Description of problem:
Running puppet 3.3.0 (or 3.3.1 from rawhide) on Fedora 20 with 3.3.1 server. I’m getting:
Error: Could not retrieve catalog from remote server: integer 4294967294 too big to convert to int' Warning: Not using cache on failed catalog Error: Could not retrieve catalog; skipping run Error: Could not save last run local report: integer 4294967294 too big to convert toint' Error: Could not send report: integer 4294967294 too big to convert to `int'
Okay, I think I found the trigger:
# ls -ld /var/lib/puppet/client_data/catalog/
drwxr-xr-x. 2 4294967294 4294967294 4096 Oct 23 12:21 /var/lib/puppet/client_data/catalog/
Thanks for the bug report - I've watched the upstream bug and will either update or patch the package when it's fixed upstream.
Just out of curiosity, how many resources are in your catalog.
That's user ids, not directory size. This is an artifact of problems occuring during my restore from backup procedure. So I'm going to close this as NOTABUG, although a nicer error message might be nice.
