VBoxZoneAccess on 32 bit Solaris

Description

VBoxZoneAccess fails repeatedly on 32 bit Solaris 10 u6, with no error message. This is due to the sleep(1000000000U) call returning immediately.

sleep(unsigned) on 32 bit Solaris suffers from a Year 2038 problem ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Year_2038_problem); if the requested sleep duration plus the current timestamp > 231, sleep returns immediately.

Consider using a shorter sleep duration for 32 bit platforms.
