2 servers running Suse Linux 7.1 kernel 2.2.19 i386, rsync 2.5.5 compiled on

these boxes.

These are two FEP's with 32 modems, working as master/slave

rsync is using dedicated 100 base T network interfaces (eth1) , crossover 
cable between them, only rsync traffic allowed on these interfaces.

rsync run every 30 seconds

It seems to be a bug when it attempt's to transfer very large files ( > 2Gb)

In this case, rsync exit's  after transferring 1699618793 bytes:
It does  not matter wheter compression is used or not, the behaviour is 
There is enough free disk space on both machines
Server side log is not more explanatory.

Please cc's answers to me too, i'am not (yet?) in the list!
