Argh, my brain seems to have been lost somewhere between the two first
paragraphs of my earlier post. Instead of "...you can even try with a PE
size of 8 MB." I should have said "...you can even try with a PE size 8
times the size of the default (32 MB)."

So 65536*32 MB = 2 TB , just what I wanted to mean and was unable to
write in the previous post.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
