Thanks for confirmation!
Seems as if quota was "not quilty". I now installed quota support and
enabled it, and now the "sys_get_vfs_quota() failed" messages are gone
from the log - but copying is impossible.
To test ext3, I used a "looped" 10GB file formatted ext3, mounted and
exported by samba - and it works!
So, ext3 seems to be a better choice than reiser for large file support
But I'm pretty upset on having reiser and samba not working together
with large files in 2004, when file sizes of >4GB are supported within
windows world since years, with none of the problems I've seen now in
linux. Nowadays such "experiments" sould not be required on a "modern
Kernel 2.6.x is not an option, as there's no highpoint driver available
for it today (no binaries, buggy sources, buggy makefile ... - rely on
it!), and lotus domino refuses to run stable (5.0.12, hangs after 2
hours). Running samba is not the only requirement here!!
So, I possibly have to change to ext3, if there's no other way - but my
decision to reiser was not by random, there were some "pro"s for it.
What a sh*t.
