We are currently waiting to receive some large disks into our test lab
to test problems reported such as this and similar ones. Please bear
with us.

Comment 2 David Lawrence 1999-06-28 21:58:59 UTC
This problem seems to have been fixed with 6.0. Could not replicate
with a large drive in test lab. Recommend upgrading.
