First, thanks for all your great product, it is really helpful in my
everyday life of developer!
I checked in the FAQs and mailing list archives and did not find the bug,
please ignore if I was blind enough to bypass it!
Here is my problem: I created a file using the following command from a
cygwin bash window:
rsh -n -l user hostname dd if=/dev/rmt/0m bs=20b > tape.tar
This command does nothing else than dumping the content of the tape drive of
the given remote system to the standard output, then redirects the standard
output into the file "tape.tar". it executes perfectly but "bash" seems to
be confused to display the file size (probably because > 2Gb).
I attached the output of both a "cmd.exe" window and the cygwin bash window.
Thanks for your help!
