If this is really a problem for you: update to Samba 2.x as soon as this makes 
sense. Display of disk sizes above 4 GB is not supported in the 1.x series.

I personally limit the displayed free disk space always to a maximum of 2047 MB to 
prevent applications with signed integers becoming nuts.

Hasta la vista,
