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.
(see http://www.suse.de/~aj/linux_lfs.html)

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.
