Is there anyway to fix large file support?

I am currently writing disaster recovery software for the company I work
for. I have been watching rsync development now for the past couple of
months, hoping that large file support would start working. I know that
rsync supports large file support, and my tests have been with large file
support turned on in rsync.
It would save me MASSIVE amounts of time if I could use rsync for disaster
recovery, but we have about 10 files that are over 2 gigs in size. That
all fail during transfer in rsync.
Please, help me! :) I am using HP/UX 11.0. I have also heard on this
lists from a few people running Solaris who cant get large file support to
work as well.
I am running todays cvs copy during this test. It also fails in version
rsync version 2.5.6cvs protocol version 26

I can send hundreds of thousands of small files with no errors, it's only
the large files >2 gig that blow up.
My systems are at your disposal if you need my help doing anything. I
just hope we can get this working.
