This is indeed the case, and HP has verified that this library is broken.
It seems they didn't build it with -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 like they should

The HP bug tracking number is JAGaf34426.  Since it's a change to their
libc package I suspect it will be a while before it emerges from their
patch factory.  Changes to libc get pretty thorough testing.  ;-)
