Seems like a limit for VM size for 32bit application.

A while ago, before 64 bit were usual, it was qutie tricky to work with
large files. Each application must to implement a kind of pageing to support
large files.

But since 64bit is something that everyone expets, we have a world where you
may mmap into memory any file and simple work with it as huge array.

With one notable exception: Java. Java enforces such limit for back
compatibility with 32 bit platforms.
