[Samba] Samba dropping connection when copying more than 4GB data.

Why is Samba (have tried 2.2.2, lates 2.x cvs and 3.x cvs) dropping the connection when a Windows box is copying large files to a Samba share.The files I have been testing with are about 1024MB and the 
connection is lost when about 2-4GB has been transfered.

I get no specific errors or warnings in the logfiles, or from the kernel (tested kernels 2.4.7-2.4.18-7) other than:

[2002/02/03 17:11:03, 0] lib/util_sock.c:read_socket_data(491)
  read_socket_data: recv failure for 3. Error = Connection reset by peer
