We have been using Xapian/Omega for over a year now and even when we
started (version 0.6.4 orso, although it was still called 0.4.1-cvs or
something like that), we didn't run into any such problems. Here is a
`ls -1sh` of our current working-database:
default-worknew$ ls -1sh
As you can see there are three tables which have passed the 2G barrier.
This is (and has always been) on a Linux system with a 2.4 kernel.
I guess this answers your question.
