    The 'count' parameter is not the problem, it's the 'offset'. You can't send
    any data beyond 2GB from the beginning of the file...

    And in fact just two days ago I was in a situation where this would have
    been desirable - I was sending parts of a captured DV video stream (the file
    was 6GB)...
