replace sal_uLong variables with sal_uInt32 for SvNumberFormatter IDs
Replace the stopgap type sal_uLong as SvNumberFormatter
format index uses sal_uInt32.

SwInsertDBColAutoPilot uses format indices from SvNumberFormatter and
from the property "FormatKey" which is stored as sal_Int32 but ctor
guards against negative values.

Change type of loop variable in SwCaptionDialog to avoid narrowing
in GetFormatStr/GetFormatKey.
