Well in another post, Stan has suggested the reason is due to the 32
bit limit if you are using a 32 bit version of motion.

Yes, ... and I find that reasoning to be inadequate and unconvincing.
2 GB is not a limit on a 32-bit ext3 filesystem.

No, but it may be and often is the limit of /certain/ 32-bit
_applications_ [*]. It has nothing to do with the ext3 filesystem.
