I saw this in a BETA snapshot of two weeks ago, and I see it again
in the snapshot I just grabbed a few hours ago.  Yes, >2GB buffers.

I also have a copy of `cnfsstat' from an older -CURRENT, which does
give the sizes, but seems to have the problem of getting stuck on
a particular buffer while the latest BETA has no problem zipping
through them all.

I'd cut and paste a few lines from each reading the same buffers,
but I'm not able to do that at the moment...
