> It seems that my history file is hitting the 2Gb mark.  When this happend the first time about a week ago, I rebuilt inn with "with-largefiles", hoping it would solve the problem, but its back again.  Doing a makehistory -o brings the file back to just under the 2gig mark, but its obviously just a matter of time before its going to happen again.

Yes thats normal.  In his.c there is an fseek on the history file to 0L.

Edit it to be an fseeko to (OFFSET_T)0 instead.  I think this is fixed in
