I don't think the original problem had anything to do with ssh at ALL.  He

Hence, ssh is completely irrelevant.  If lvemux can't handle > 2G files it is
because it wasn't compiled with LFS.  The file accesses in processes doesn't
depend in any way on the shell that started it last I heard.  The shell gets
forked, then the process *replaces* the forked shell in memory.

If ssh won't let you scp > 2G files, it too wasn't compiled with LFS.
