File Size Issue

Hi Folks,

I have a question about file sizes through the smbmount samba client. I
am connecting to a Windows 2000 Server through smbmount on Red Hat Linux
8.0 (although I've had the same problem on Mandrake as well), and for
some reason it incorrectly shows the size of a 3GB file as being 16TB.
When I try to copy it from the Windows Server to Linux it tries to copy
it as that size, and so fails with a disk full error.

Can anyone help out here?

Cheers, Tom
