Beware of limit to displaying offline size of an object

Note that offline sizes are large than they appear in the display.

It appears as if there is a limit to the object size that can be displayed when you want to display the offline size of an object. I regularly save large save files that are several gigabytes in size. When I display the object description to check the save date, etc., I have found the offline size is limited to: 2147483647 even though the object is larger. It appears as if the object is saved successfully, however, and it is just a failure to report the offline size correctly - not in saving the object fully. Just a hint to bear this in mind when saving large objects to tape.
