Hi

I just noticed this problem -
I'm missing some large files created in the filesystem.

This is 'ls' output from 2.4.0-test11/test10
total 33
drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 Nov 20 18:06 .
drwxr-xr-x 42 root root 1024 Nov 20 14:02 ..
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Nov 19 15:50 X
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 16384 Sep 30 18:45 lost+found
ls: zero: Value too large for defined data type

And this is same directory with 2.2.17pre9
total 4561569
drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 lis 20 18:06 .
drwxr-xr-x 42 root root 1024 lis 20 14:02 ..
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 16384 z 30 18:45 lost+found
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 lis 19 15:50 X
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4294967295 lis 20 18:08 zero

Thought the 'zero' file has been created in 2.4.0-test11
I can't see it again with this kernel.

I would assume this is some problem of the kernel,
but maybe its incompatibility in libc - anyway I'm using
uptodate Debian Woody if this helps.

bye
