Dr. Lobo,

I looked at the current code and it appears that large files should
work fine.  However, there has been significant work on the ENVI
driver over the last couple years. What version of GDAL are you using?
This can be determined with the "gdalinfo --version" command.

It may be that you need to upgrade.
