Ipopd does not appear to support mbox's over 2 GiB via pop3 downloads.

Currently that account has a ~3.2 GiB mbox (about 2-3 weeks of email for 
that particular account).  Smaller mbox's work just fine.  If i crop the 
file to 2 GiB, ipopd works as expected.

 I am wondering if the mailbox format used by the bug reporter is MBX? 

 UW-imap supports 3 formats:
  Unix mailbox - much higher limit (but may slow down to a crawl as it gets large)
  MBX - faster than Unix mailbox, 2GB limit
  MIX  - newest, ridiculously fast for large mailboxes and its size limit is higher than any of the others.
