This is a limitation of the 1003.2 ustar format; to quote the opengroup doc:
The size of the file in octets, expressed as a decimal number using digits
from the ISO/IEC 646:1991 standard. This record shall override the size field
in the following header block(s). When used in write or copy mode, pax shall
include a size extended header record for each file with a size value greater
than 8589934591 (octal 77777777777).
Which is, effectively, the same exact issue as bin/26521.
