2G Maximum file size?

I have just tried to rsync a file of 2147500032 bytes (2.0000152587Gb) and
got the following error:
   rsync -Wvaz /db/edwp/temp/edwp_temp_09.dbf klingon::Dest/db/edwp/temp/
   building file list ... link_stat /db/edwp/temp/edwp_temp_09.dbf : Value
too large for defined data type
   wrote 81 bytes  read 40 bytes  80.67 bytes/sec
   total size is 0  speedup is 0.00
Source and destination systems are running Solaris 2.6.
Does this mean that rsync has a maximum file size of 2Gb on Solaris? 
If so is there a work around? Any help gratefully accepted.
