2.1GB is bigger than the biggest signed 32-bit int.

Be careful: RVM is not "extra memory in a file", it is a way to
recover the contents of real virtual memory.  You must have enough
real memory (RAM+swap, and of course preferably RAM) to hold all of
RVM, plus any processes (eg, the codasrv and update servers) running
at the same time, plus the kernel.

If you must run such a big server, the usual recommendation is to
split it up into multiple processes.  This has been discussed several
times on the mailing list, and there are hints in the configuration
files in /etc/coda.
