[Samba] 2 terabyte filesystem limitation on linux client

I have recently introduced two 5.5TB XFS filesystems to our storage
backend. I export the filesystem via samba 3.0.3 on Fedora core 2.
Linux clients that mount the share show only 2TB available. Windows
clients show the full capacity. Before I put these filesystems into
production I'd like to find out if the reported filesystem size is going
to cause a problem. Is SMB actually limited to 2TB? If so, why do
Windows clients see the full capacity? Is this a limitation of the
samba client software on the linux side?
Thanks for your input.
