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.

and sorry to be such a nuisance...
but any motive for an MPI-IO "wall" between the 2.0 and 2.1 Gb?
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
