What system/compiler is this? I am getting 
./ldouble                                                                                                                                     
1.84467e+19 1.84467e+19

and 

>>> res = np.longdouble(2)**64
>>> res
18446744073709551616.0
>>> 2**64
18446744073709551616L
>>> res-1
18446744073709551615.0
>>> np.__version__
'1.6.1'

as well as with 

>>> np.__version__
'2.0.0.dev-3d06f02'
[yes, not very up to date]
