That value is in "jiffies", the unit of timer interrupts in the kernel.
Jozsef was going to fix that, but apparently did not come around to
do so in the code you are using.
A "jiffie", on the usual x86 Linux systems, is 10 milliseconds, i.e. there
are 100 jiffies in the second. Thus, you really have 5 days there.
