Over soaking beans

Is it possible to soak beans for too long? I always use dried beans but this time I let them (black beans) soak for about a day and a half. yikes. I got busy with school and studying and forgot all about cooking them.

I just rinsed the beans and they seem fine. However, prior to rinsing them they smelled not so good and there was a bit of a foam-film on top that smelled terrible.

Seems like cooking them might take care of any worries, but just thought I'd ask to see if anyone had any input.

Thanks in advance.
