Subject: [boost] Seek within a file stream using large offsets - reactivation

I need to solve problem with seeking streams for large files.
The problem leaks on Windows 32 and 64 bit, but the solution I'm looking
for needs to be portable to Unix too.
I have discussed this issue on #boost IRC and it looks Boost.IOStreams
does not provide any cure for it.

I've just found this problem was discussed 5 years ago.

with some interesting suggestions:

I'm wondering, has been there any motion on any level, Boost or C++
standard, to solve it?

I'm looking for recommendation of any solution that would be sensible
for this problem. (I can't ask my clients to move to STLport :-))
