Is this a bug?

I mounted an NT directory on Linux using smbmount. In that directory NT reports
test.bkf to be 5.9 gigs and Linux ls -al reports it as 1.6 gigs.

Then I transferred the file to an off-site box using scp, which reported a
successful 1.6 gig transfer and the off-site box shows a 1.6 gig file in the
proper directory.

here are some details:
NT 4.0 sp5 NTFS
Redhat 7.2 EXT3
mount -t smbfs //machine/backup /mnt/backup
Then from the mounted directory
scp test.bkf ipaddress:/home/backup/test.bkf

On the LILAX e-mail list someone suggested this might be a problem arising from
integer limits.

Thanks in advance,
