Now that we've established this isn't a problem with rm,
you might want to ask around on ext3- or LVM-specific lists.
You might even want to consider using a different type of
file system.  xfs is supposed to be particularly well-suited
to usage patterns involving very large files.
Also, your kernel is rather old.  Upgrading would probably pull
in much newer ext3 support.

Please Cc the mailing list with any reply, i.e., use "Reply-All".
Replying to an individual (and dropping the list Cc:) like you have
done two or three times is frowned upon in some circles.
