Package: pdksh
Version: 5.2.14-8

The following perl script should create a file of 2147491840 bytes, but
it stops at 2147483647 (2^31-1).
As far as I remember this has something to do with changed ulimit
structure: 64 <-> 32 bit gives (int32)-1 == (int64)0x00000000ffffffff

$ ulimit -a
time(cpu-seconds)    unlimited
file(blocks)         unlimited
coredump(blocks)     0
data(kbytes)         unlimited
stack(kbytes)        8192
lockedmem(kbytes)    unlimited
memory(kbytes)       unlimited
nofiles(descriptors) 1024
processes            256
flocks               unlimited

$ perl -e 'open(FH,">x");$x="X"x1023 . "\n";for($n=0;$n<2097160;$n++){
print FH $x;} close(FH);'

$ wc x
2097151 2097152 2147483647 x

closing with the pdksh → mksh migration, just tested this
on amd64, and it works.

guy. But he's always right! In every fsckin' situation, he's right. Even
with his deeply perverted taste in software and borked ambition towards
broken OSes - in the end, he's damn right about it :(! […] works in mksh
