Comment 1 Joe Orton 2004-03-10 14:14:10 UTC
Thanks for the report.

Since the server can neither stat() the large file to discover its
size, nor serve it to clients, I think the expected behaviour is that
it is omitted from the directory listing.  Do you agree?

Comment 2 Lance Davis 2004-03-10 14:22:40 UTC
Yes - maybe with a warning to the error log, so people can see why it
isnt there if they look - or display in the index with a '>2GB
unknown' type ebtry.

Fix confirmed with httpd-2.0.46-38.ent.
