Thanks for the tip Dan. it was mounting as v2. Mounting by hand as v3 
addressed the problem, though why it was  dying @ 4 GB ( - 16K) instead 
of 2 GB baffles me.

The other variable here is amd, which I wanst using for the full, 
correct run ( 6 GB .gz file).

will see how it goes.

thanks for your help,
