I noticed a bug in putf

When you print an unsigned value that is greater than the max signed value
for the type putf has a problem.  The code putf sign extends the unsigned
value into a long (because it treats the unsigned value as signed when it
copies to ulval)



Yields a very unexpected result (0xffffffff formatted as an unsigned long).
