Section No section says:
and -1,297,728,000 corresponds to 00:00 17 Nov 1858 GMT.
It should say:
and -1,297,728,000 (value which would be illegal for this protocol) corresponds to 00:00 17 Nov 1858 GMT.
Although it is not explicit in the RFC, the 32-bits value is unsigned (otherwise, it could not end in 2036, as the RFC says). So, a negative value is not possible.
