Your probably right.  There are other applications that obviously don't
like large files (even though the file should not need to be opened,
just listed).  Perhaps they use 'long' for tracking filesize or
something (and I have no desire of checking all standard utils like ls,
find, ...).

What's the average "stability" of a woody "snapshot" at some time?  Do
people use it for productions servers normaly, and are there any special
concerns/coutions that have to be taken when running woody?
