I am using AIX 4.3.3 and 5.1, rsync version 2.5.5
protocol version 26

when rsyncing files that are larger than 2gb it dies.
You get message about broken something.

root limits is -1
filesystems are large file enabled.

I tested this with linux to linux and it does not have
this problem.

any reason why it does not work in AIX?
