[Numpy-discussion] memmap on 64bit Linux for > 2 GB files

I finally tried to do the test, to memmap a large file
filesize: 2.8G

a memmap call gives this error:

>>> N.memmap('20050622-1648-Y_DEMO-1')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<input>", line 1, in ?
  File "/jws30/haase/PrLinN64/numpy/core/memmap.py", line 67, in __new__
    mm = mmap.mmap(fid.fileno(), bytes, access=acc)
OverflowError: memory mapped size is too large (limited by C int)

I'm using a recent numpy on a 64bit Linux (debian etch, kernel:
>>> N.__version__
>>> N.int0
<type 'numpy.int64'>

Is this supposed to work ?
