File.stat('file_name').size returns erroneous file sizes when the 
files are over 2 Gigs in size (at which point the number wraps around 
and becomes negative).  Is this an expected limitation or a bug?

I am using the Pragmatic Programmers 1.8.1-11 build on a windows 2000 
machine.


Is there a work around?


Thanks,


Walt
