Description of problem:
When attempting to cat a file larger than 2gb under csh (only csh, not bash) 
you get: "Filesize limit exceeded (core dumped)" When manipulating the same 
file using cp or tar there is no problem. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load csh if not already running it ("csh")
2. Create a file larger than 2gb (e.g "tar cvf test.tar /some large directory")
3. Attempt to cat the file into another file ("cat test.tar >> test2.tar")

Actual Results:  It starts to work but produces the error message and dies when 
it reaches 2147483647 

Expected Results:  It should cat the entire file!
