Fix appending to large files (>4GB) on Windows
Fri Oct 1 06:24:25 CEST 2010
Append mode doesn't work for files larger that 4GB on Windows. The
problem occurs when the file is larger than 4GB at opening time. If
it's smaller at opening time, it can grow beyond 4GB.
I suspect that passing NULL lpDistanceToMoveHigh to SetFilePointer in
the file driver causes moves larger that 2^32 to fail.
