[FFmpeg-user] Is it safe? (DV AVI > 4 gig)

Creating long ( > 4 gig) DV AVI files.
Now, AVI specs 'somehow'  (i have no clue to the exact specs) state that 
there is a 2 or 4 gig file size limit.
FFmpeg (actually, i pipe FFmpeg to FFmbc to get my setup working) seems to 
have no problem creating larger files,
and they seem to work fine in my shop.

But, what trouble to expect when these files go out into the wild?
Any known problems with NLE's and these files that I should be aware of?
