Hi Chuck, Thanks for replying. Unfortunately the bug is still observed - i did some additional triaging. * The bug is seen only when the samba share exported is on a vfat file system - for ext2 and ext3 the large sized copy succeeds without fail. * I also tried using the samba package from debian-arm repositories(lenny-stable) - but there also the problem is seen. * Even if the error is thrown up - the file is still being copied in the background - or ftruncate'ing in the background (I suspect it is only ftruncating and filling the space with zeroes because of two reasons - one the md5sums do not match afterwards and two the code seems to be doing the same thing) - but as previously stated adding a patch to always call ftruncate64() in sys_ftruncate() does not fix the problem.
