I have a problem with rsync (current CVS version), running on a win2k
machine (rsync compiled using Cygwin).

c:\rsync>rsync --version
rsync  version 2.4.6dev  protocol version 24
Copyright (C) 1996-2001 by Andrew Tridgell, Paul Mackerras and others
Capabilities: 64-bit files, socketpairs, hard links, symlinks

It can DOWNload >2gb files from my linux box (with rsync reporting
negative file sizes during download :), but I want to use rsync to back
up the win2k host so I need to UPload my soo-large files which does not

c:\rsync>rsync -avvv big.file otherhost::whatever

building file list ... 
send_file_list done
send_files starting
send_files mapped big.file of size -1692471296
calling match_sums big.file
sending file_sum
false_alarms=0 tag_hits=0 matches=0
sender finished big.file
send_files phase=1
send files finished
total: matches=0  tag_hits=0  false_alarms=0 data=-1692471296
wrote 173 bytes  read 56 bytes  152.67 bytes/sec
total size is -1692471296  speedup is -7390704.35

File system is NTFS, the file size is ~2.6Gbs.
For small files, everything seems to be OK.

Any help would be appreciated.
