When we refer to large file support it means files larger
than 2GB.

Look in the archives.

Your files aren't that large.  A larger blocksize may improve
performance and help avoid a completely unrelated issue.

If you want help with a bug you will need to ugrade.  Much
of the time when a bug is encountered on older versions it
has already been fixed.  Upgrading is likely to cause the
bug to disappear.  If you do have a bug you would need to
upgrade to current or CVS and build your own binaries in
order to apply the fix.
