smbfs the in-kernel filesystem, (particularly old versions such as in
Linux 2.4) never did files over 4GB well.  

'Fixing' the userspace samba won't change the in-kernel limitations.  I
suggest you find a different way to move the files, perhaps use
smbclient - the default compile should be perfectly fine for large files
(Samba itself has done large files for many years).
