I'm afraid not. We don't do large files yet. I believe the system
calls used to implement file streams fail for files over 2GB in size.
We'll either need to switch to a different set of calls or enable
large files using some flag (don't remember which). Go ahead a open
an enhancement request if you would like to see this implemented.
