Hmm ... 7.3 does have support for 64-bit sequences, if it was compiled
on a compiler that has a 64-bit integer type. If you just do
create sequence s;
select * from s;
what do you see for max_value? If it's 2147483647, then you need to get
a better compiler and rebuild Postgres. If it's 9223372036854775807
then you're good, and what you probably have is a sequence that was
dumped and reloaded from an older version of Postgres that didn't have
64-bit sequence support. I don't think 7.3 has ALTER SEQUENCE, but you
could drop and recreate the sequence and then manually fix its current

Not unless you said CYCLE. Read the CREATE SEQUENCE man page.
