Yes, ext2's maximum file size is 1 byte less than 2 GB (2147483647 bytes.

If the remote filesystem is ext2 then this is definitely the problem.   The
2.4 kernel gets around this problem at least with some filesystems (perhaps
still not with ext2 though) ... if you really need to create files > 2GB then
you should upgrade your kernel.  I've been running woody with 2.4 kernels
(test and "stable") for months without any problems, YMMV.
