I think the limit for a write (and also for a read) is 2^31-1 (2G-1). In a C program, after this value, an integer becomes negative. I suppose this is also true in
Fortran. The solution, is to make a loop of writes (reads) of no more than this value.

Salve Ricardo Reis!

Is this "wall" perhaps the 2GB Linux file size limit on 32-bit systems?

No. This is a 64bit machine and if I write the file normaly (like just using Fortran open/write/close) it works without problem (I just got a 3.5Gb file this way).

If try to use 2 processes it will also spit a 3.5 Gb file (because each will be  writing a chunk smaller than the 2.1 Gb "limit" ?)

I haven't tried to replicate the same program in C, I must admit
