Is the fact that it switches between a positive and a negative figure
of any significance at all?


it probably means some code is not expecting it to go over 63
as 64 is a power of 2 the bits used to transmit the value will be
higher for 64 and greater, someone messed up the coding that reaspods
to this. Sometimes you see -319742389793 or similar in the same
circumstances.
