  usb-creator-gtk can't reserve user-space more 2GB

Status in usb-creator package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  usb-creator-gtk can't reserve user-space more than 2GB. It was tested
  against 8GB flash and ubuntu-11.10-desktop-i386.iso.

  usb-creator-gtk itself advertises ability of 4GB max. of user-space
  for 8GB fat32 flash, obviously restricted to fat32 max. file size
  standard. But actually usb-creator-gtk stucks hamming with in 2GB to 4
  GB user-space sizes. At sizes 3GB to 4GB it simply erases created
  user-space file finishing its creation. At sizes 2Gb to 3GB it just
  stucks at some magic percent of 'finished amount' .

  Moreover, it would be good idea to allow usb-creator-gtk to use other
  FSs (like ext4, ntfs) with weaker file size restrictions to allow
  users to obtain more user-space in ones favour.
