Subject: [Caml-list] error opening large file

i get the following error when i open a large file (2561435180 bytes):

   let chan = open_in( "" );;
   Uncaught exception:
   " Value too large for defined data type".

is there a 2G file size limitation?  if so, why?
i found the same bug in erlang, though C is ok with it.

this is on redhat 7.1 running ocaml 3.02
