Subject: file size limit?

I got a program which lseeks and writes single bytes into a file and
reports the maximum file size allowed by a system:
jmarin@pyy /tmp %(129)~/testi
pos: 0x840000000; offset: 0x840000000
write:: File too large
jmarin@pyy /tmp %(130)ll bigfile
-rw------- 1 jmarin wheel 34359738369 Nov 8 22:47 bigfile
Why only 32768 gigabytes? I have no limit for file sizes and the partition
is not full. The same happens on Sparc and i386.
Just curious - I don't have a need for such files right now. ;-)
