Wireshark-users: [Wireshark-users] Wireshark (1.4.0) fails opening large file on Windows Vista 32

Hi Wiresharkers,
I have received a large PCAP file on NTFS filesystem of size 2,439,870,895 bytes.
Opening the file yields the following error message (after a long wating time):
GLib-ERROR **: gmem.c:136: failed to allocate 4294967295 bytes aborting…
To open the file, is it worth seeking for a 64-bit machine?
Is largefile support planned in any 32-bit versions of Wireshark?
