I believe you are correct.  I ran cfnsstat last night when it was at position 1.6 GB at it worked fine.  Later I was unable to do a cnfsstat - read error again.  I believe it was in the post 2GB position, though this was hardly a scientific process.  Today I am able to run cnfsstat again because the cycbuff has clearly cycled.

The "Anonymous Meower" mentioned building Perl with 'largefile support' which is something I will look into doing.
