Hello Eli,

yes, it happens only by files larger than 4GB and your description sounds 
reasonable. Maybe this should be mentioned too under "Known Problems" because 
the displayed result is obviously wrong.

Are the offending files larger than 4GB, by any chance?  If so, this is 
expected: the emulation of `stat' we use simply doesn't support such large 
files, since the relevant field of the `stat' structure is 32-bit wide.  To 
support such large files we will need to write stat64 and use 64-bit integers.  
I don't expect this to happen before v22.1 is released.
