The comment immediately above this suggests that it is deliberate

  /* Use hashing to improve object.size. Here we want equal CHARSXPs,

     not equal contents.  This only uses the bottom 32 bits of the pointer,
     but for now that's almost certainly OK */

The warning is presumably because casting this int back to a pointer would fail (and is a common 32 to 64bit conversion error), but that's not what is happening here.
