Hmm, but he seemed to be running 0.9.x, and there librsync only
operates on buffers, never directly on an actual file.

    Looking more closely at Python's code, I see that I may have been
using the wrong stat structure.  Are you running some version of
Windows by any chance John?  I notice that the Wine header files on my
computer provide a _stati64 structure which has an st_size field of
type __int64.

    I would have never guessed stat()ing a file was so complicated...
