Yup. The problem is that an HFS filesystem refers to allocation
blocks with an unsigned 16 bit integer, so while the specification
technically allows 2^32 different files, only 2^16 can actually
be taking up any space, and there are a few system files taking
up some of that, so in practical terms, it's a little smaller.
