[Samba] Strange file size reporting

This just started occurring with the latest update from Red Hat, to 2.2.7-5.8.0.

I mount a Win2k server share to access a backed up Exchange mail store. The size reported by Windows is 2.01gb, the size reported by my Samba server is 2.01tb.

I have other files in this backup repository that report size correctly. I am guessing this is because of the large size of the file and maybe a limitation of Samba?

I hope not.
