There is no reason to believe that gsize or size_t are appropriate,
either.  In this case, however, we can be confident that the
*difference* between these two values is small; the appropriate cast
would be something like (int)(pos - t->values->str).  However, the
difference between pointers yields an integer value in any case, so
the cast should be unnecessary.

It looks like this has been resolved in the source already, but just
for the sake of clarification...
