Are you using smbmount on one side (i.e. mount -t smbfs..... )?   The
smbmount program was supposedly using an old  samba codebase that didn't
yet go over 2GB.  I've had this problem writing to a Win2k box from a
RedHat 9 box running 2.2.8a before.

If not using a mount point, by what method were you copying?
