! You can have volumes larger than 2TB with 1.4 fileservers (maybe not
! 1.4.5, though). I didn't think the 1.6 series changed anything with
! volume size or quota limitations.
We were of the understanding that there was a 2TB limit on partitions
with 1.4.x which is not the case in 1.6.x.

We will attempt to apply the above patch and will report back our
