I thought the limit was 2GB (according to the man page).

I do not see which change was done in 2.4.5 to provide such an improvement.
But well, if it runs faster, it's perfect!

Thanks for your patch.
I may appear a bit lame but I do not understand exactly how your patch
fixes the limit of 2 or 4GB.  How does it do that?
What is the new limit?
