Large file size issues with Samba client.

I'm trying to access a Windows 2000 server share that has files > 2GB using the Samba client 2.2.3 that comes with Redhat 7.3. It lists the files as being many times larger than their actual size. I upgraded to the CVS version of Samba today and it still has the problem. Any ideas on how to work around this?
