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.
