Question about FutureWarning

I have module M1 which has the following line in it:

StartTime = safe_dict_get ( dic, 'starttime', 0xFFFFFFFF )

It gets imported by modules M2 and M3. And finally, M4 imports both M2 and

| |\M1
| |\M1

I'm building a .deb file which means I have to compile the modules into
..pyc and .pyo files.

The compile command I use is

i_python ()
$python -c "import $1"
$python -O -c "import $1"
i_python M1
i_python M2
i_python M3
i_python M4

When M1 is compiled, there's no problem. The same for when I compile M2
and M3. But when M4 is compiled, I get the following message:

M1.py:268: FutureWarning: hex/oct constants sys.maxint will
return positive values in Python 2.4 and up
StartTime = safe_dict_get ( dic, 'starttime', 0xFFFFFFFF )

I get the message twice, ostensibly because of M3 and M2.

I was able to shut off the warning by adding the following lines *before*
the import in M4.

import warnings
warnings.filterwarnings('ignore', category=FutureWarning)

My question is this: Why can the warning not be shut off by putting the
two lines in M1?
