For files greater than 2gb, ls is mis-reporting the size.
I assume this is a known issue. Is there a planned fix?
windows' dir command reports:

cygwin's ls reports:
-rw-rw-rw- 1 gmc Administ 18446744071805532160 May 3 10:22 bigfile.tar
What is that, some 18+ exabytes? I can only dream of a hard drive that big :-)
