Symptoms

Attempts to run SunSHIELD[TM] BSM's "praudit" (/usr/sbin/praudit) fails against a 4.3 GB log file; generates message

praudit -l <4.3 GB audit filename> praudit: Can't assign <4.3 GB audit filename> to stdin

The utility runs successfully against an 800 MB and other smaller files.

Increasing swap does not resolve problem.
