Despite the nonsense that tcsh reports on limits, I can create files > 4
GB without problems, from tcsh, from the Mandrake Cooker src.rpm--Here,
demonstrated with a 5 GB file:

[root@amanda tmp]# dd if=/dev/zero of=test.img bs=128M count=40
40+0 records in
40+0 records out
[root@amanda tmp]# ls
test.img
[root@amanda tmp]# du -h test.img 
5.1G    test.img
[root@amanda tmp]# limit -h
cputime         0:0-1
filesize        4194303 kbytes
datasize        4194303 kbytes
stacksize       4194303 kbytes
coredumpsize    4194303 kbytes
memoryuse       4194303 kbytes
vmemoryuse      4194303 kbytes
descriptors     1024 
memorylocked    4194303 kbytes
maxproc         2045 
openfiles       1024
