[gdal-dev] NITF file limitations

I was recently trying to open a NITF (jpeg blocked) file whose size was roughly 5GB using the stable 1.6 release and having quite a bit of trouble. Namely, I'm getting Access Violation Exception in the calls to CloseHandle. I dug around in the source a bit and noticed the code for the NITFdataset was referncing various file indexes that were stored in 32bit int's, this would obviously cause an issue for files of this size, maybe not specifically the issue I'm seeing but definitely with respect to raster data access. Does anyone know if this is a known issue and if so is there any way to work with this, or is this something thats needing to be addressed? Thanks.
