Common problem - it's due to internal API changes in resource
limits.  You need to ensure that your maximum file size
is set to `unlimited'.  Kernel is currently applying file
size limits to block devices (which is broken) and I
think e2fsprogs' attempt to set sile size limits to
RLIM_INFINITY gets broken by a consipiracy between the
kernel change and glibc headers.
