    Dear Paul,
    thanks for the prompt response. Your patch really solved the problem!

    >   I've looked at the code path that generates the message "Couldn't restore 
    file pointer" and I am fairly confident the problem is simply that we are not 
    testing the return from sys_lseek() correctly.  The result is that the large 
    file offset (>2GB) is being interpreted incorrectly by BLCR as a negative 
    value indicating an error.
    >   If you could, please apply the attatched patch to 0.7.1 and let me know if 
    this resolves the problem.
