What is the maximum file size on a dvd+r ?

System : 5.4-RELEASE-p6
Command used : growisofs -Z /dev/cd0 -l -J -r burn/
In burn/ I have a backup file of size 4166629386 bytes and some smaller
files. In total 4577410 kB.

growisofs ends normally :

An 'ls -la' of the mounted dvd+r shows :
ls: backup.bz2: Value too large to be stored in data type

I can read the whole dvd without problems on a non-FreeBSD system. I
cannot find a limit in GROWISOFS(1m) or MKISOFS(8), but on
I read about a 2 GB maximum filesize for a file on a dvd. Is this true ?
If so I think it should be mentioned in GROWISOFS(1m).

FreeBSD's implementation is correct, Linux is the one that's wrong,
they decided to embrace and extend the standard. Theirs a 2GB cap per
file on DVDs.
