I've spent quite some time trying to store large
files on a samba share - I don't get it to work:

Samba server:
Linux 2.4.16, glibc 2.2.2, Suse 7.2
reiser and ext2 partitions,
	- the orig. from the distrib.,
	- a binary Suse upgrade,
	- self compiled 2.2.3 and 2.2.3.a

the self compiled version shows:
1) ./configure ...
	checking if large file support can be enabled... yes
2) cc param: ... -D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 ...
3) my smb.conf has the global option:
	large readwrite = Yes

Win-2000, sp2,
several applic.: backup, explorer, mpeg video stream

all combination fail with a dialog box on windows:
	"the device reported a error on a request to write ...
	 Error reported: Unknown Error"
always at the 2 GB boundary

What do I miss here ????

Any help is greatly appreciated,
