Every modern C++ compiler supports long long (or better yet,
int_least64_t), and long long is non-controversial and has been voted
into the WP for the next standard. So people use long long and expect
to get reasonable results. Thus I'd be inclined to treat any long long
bug just as seriously as a plain long bug.
