Description of problem:
When globbing a directory containing a large file(>2GB) tcsh fails to list the
file. Thus
# ls -la
total 7041792
drwxr-xr-x    2 dgreen   other        4096 Aug 19 16:06 ./
drwx------    5 dgreen   other        4096 Aug 19 16:11 ../
-rwxr-x---    1 dgreen   other      559540 Aug  9 14:44 VXFnogr*
-rwxr-x---    1 dgreen   other      559540 Aug 11 13:14 VXFnogrlarge*
-rw-rw----    1 dgreen   other    306503680 Aug 19 16:04 c2
-rw-rw----    1 dgreen   other    4904058880 Aug 19 16:11 c32
-rw-rw----    1 dgreen   other    613007360 Aug 19 16:04 c4
-rw-rw----    1 dgreen   other    1226014720 Aug 19 16:06 c8
-rw-------    1 dgreen   other    153251840 Aug 10 07:21 core.10839
-rw-r-----    1 dgreen   other        2169 Aug  9 14:44 vxfdefault9

Note the large file, c32 which is just under 5GB.
# echo *
VXFnogr VXFnogrlarge c2 c4 c8 core.10839 vxfdefault9

Note the absence of c32 in the list
# echo c3[123]
echo: No match.
# echo c[34]2
echo: No match.

# ls c32

works. Ie, the globbing function fails against large files. If I replace the
above with one of the othr files, everything works. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
tcsh 6.10-6

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.See above. Just run tcsh.
 Under bash, everything works as expected.


Expected Results:  The globbing should have picked up the large file. It did not.
This means that any globbing fails. Thus
rm * 
will not remove the large file. 
cp * /tmp
will not copy the large file, etc.
