This problem is probably due to a long overflow in fseek(FILE*, long, int). There is no easy solution for that, except compiling both OS and Gnupg anainst a libc that uses 64 (or higher) bit longs. Linux is known to be unable to cope with > 2GB files (signed long), NT seems to do better. I gues we'll have to wait for the Itanium processor. -- ir. J.C.A.
