I wanted to open a 4GB file and it didn't work...
A bit more testing showed, that PHP is NOT capable of opening files >2GB!

This problem also occurs on PHP4!

Reproduce code:
1. Create a file that is BIGGER THAN 2GB!
2. And then:

Expected result:
PHP should open the damn file! *g* ;-)

Actual result:
<br />
<b>Warning</b>:  fopen(./backup_1126490350.tar.gz): failed to open stream: File too large in <b>/root/backup/fopentest.php</b> on line <b>30</b><br />

Please do not submit the same bug more than once. An existing
bug report already describes this very problem. Even if you feel
that your issue is somewhat different, the resolution is likely
to be the same. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

I just wasn't sure...
