FYI:

I had some discussions about apache >2GB problems on the fedora/redhat
mirror list.  Someone claimed that he had apache working fine with >2GB
files.  I just tested the new >2GB capable FC2 wget update against his

(yes I know that you can re-route the >2G files via ftp transfers
in your apache config, but it would be nice if apache did not have
this problem in the future. I don't use any apache on my mirror btw:
just vsftpd .. :-)
