Also, Evo uses signed 32-bit integers for internal file indexing, even
on a 64-bit machine, so it has problems with any file of over 2GB in
size. (In practice the only files that big are going to be mboxes.) Note
this is independent of the maximum file size supported on your system.
The only fix is to split the file into smaller chunks, e.g. using
formail or even a text editor.

FYI, I think we finally got that fixed in 2.31.  We use 64-bit offset
values everywhere now and have enabled large-file support by default.
So no more 2 GB barrier.

Unfortunately it required an API break, so we couldn't backport it.
