[just a hint]

i had the same problem if i wanted to copy files from linux smb-client 
(mount.smbfs) to samba server with:

- samba v3 running on SuSE 9.1 64 Bit 2.6 kernel, xfs

not samba was the problem (windows could store files >2GB) but the smbfs 
kernel module stopped me
so i used cifs instead which worked
