Unfortunately this would just move the overflow into Condition::absoluteFromRelative(), where have these two lines:

    Clock::duration myRelativeTimeout =

    return Clock::now() + myRelativeTimeout;

libc++ represents both nanoseconds and milliseconds using the same type (long long), so the duration_cast will overflow trying to convert the largest long long into an even larger number of nanosecond ticks. Now we're right back where we started, subtracting from Clock::now() instead of adding.

Yeah, this is basically what I proposed doing in Radar, although now Geoff made me realize that my patch has a totally unnecessary subtraction in it!

Thanks for the feedback, Geoff and Phil.
