Hm... oh, wait.  I'm remembering something vaguely.  Are you running a
64-bit kernel?  There are some limitations on the size of raw partitions
that one can access at the 2GB mark, and I'm not sure what version of
Solaris they were lifted at, if they were lifted.  I'm pretty sure you at
least have to be running a 64-bit kernel.

But other partitions of the same size are working fine?

Hm.  Then that can't be it....
