If I try to create a tar file containing a file over 4 GB
long, the file size gets truncated to only 32-bits worth. I
think only the truncated number of bytes gets included in
the archive.

tar version 1.14 seems to have large file support which
deals with this. At least, the cygwin and Solaris versions
of tar seem OK with large files.
