Yup and no. In that order. Though I've no idea what the biggest file
that a 32-bit application under Windows can have open. Note that we
don't mmap, so it shouldn't be an address space issue but certainly I'd
not be surprised if you find you can't push it beyond 2GB.

Yeah. We've also hammered it to death under Debians and Ubuntus. None of
us develop under Windows and we're lacking a Windows soak testing
environment so I'm not too surprised it's been missed, sadly.

If you have it handy, that'd certainly help, but it's not a code path
that's tricky to hit so don't waste any time on it.

Merry wotsits,
