Host system reported that the file size limit - Reported incorrectly

|Version:||VirtualBox 1.5.6||Keywords:||file size limit VM execution suspended|
I am running Ubuntu 7.10 on a Dual Core X6800 with 4GB Ram. I am running a WinXp SP2 client with a C: Drive VDI of 100GB and a D: Drive VDI of 100GD; both are dynamic disks.
The Ubuntu host is running all partitions/file systems as ext3. All partitions are at least 300GB with the two partitions that hold the VDI files having over 200GB free space on each.
I keep getting the following error. Usually happens when running a file sharing program on the WinXp guest.
"Host system reported that the file size limit has been exceeded. VM execution is suspended. You need to move the file to a filesystem which allows bigger files."
Given the amounts of space I have dedicated to the VDIs and base file systems; and the fact I am using ext3; how can this be? Is this a bug in the software?
