I have a similar problem I was going to ask you about.On one of my sites
it keeps trying to back a larger file than 2GB and sometime dying. The
server is linux - so I assume this is the same problem?

The client is win32 but I am fairly certain this should be able to
handle large files.

This is on Linux, right? I didn't do the compiler magic which enabled=20
64 bit file access (because I'm not a Linux person and had absolutely=20
no idea you needed to do this on a modern operating system) so I=20

Can you turn on ExtendedLogging on both client and server, and then=20
send me the 20 or so log lines leading up to this error from both=20
machines? (I know this is my standard response to any problem, but it=20
does solve problems quickly!)
