I suspect this is one of those things you wish to have fixed in mingw, but
anyways worth noting. 

The commit made on this will break support for >2gb files in mingw. mingw
doesn't have a 64bit off_t and standard file functions. It only has explicit
support for it using off64_t, lseeki64 and similars.

Now this isn't impossible to hack around using some changes to sys/stat.h and
stdio.h in mingw, thou it has a tendency to get abit uggly if not done properly.
