I've never heard of the shell doing this. Get a real shell. :) But seriously,
this sounds more likely to be a problem with your build of lvemux. Make sure
that you build with large file support if you compile it.
If you didn't compile it, but put in a package, the package is likely crap. I
have never heard of a shell not allowing access to > 2G, that's insanity. It
would be running as the same code on the console as in an SSH session.
