Hello everyone,

According to the documentation in gdal.org, the in-memory file format 
(MEM) has a 2GB size limit. I recently used MEM to process an image 
whose size is larger than 2GB without encountering any error message. 
The output seems to be fine as well. Has the MEM driver been upgraded to 
handle image > 2 GB. I am using GDAL v1.5.2.
