Hm.. can you ktrace this and see which call fails? Also don't forget to
unlimit the data size before you start mysql (commands vary depending on
the shell you're using); the default data size is too low. The maximum
currently is 8G.
The 2G number you mention does indicate that mysql may have a 32bit
overflow issue, though.
