What version of GDAL is this using?  The ECW driver has gone
through a large number of changes in recent months.  

The problem might be due to the size of the file.  I would encourage
you to file a GDAL bug.  Please include the port/gdal_config.h 
file in the bug report as the problem may be due to the "large file
support" not having been configured in successfully.

Should I take this to mean you can't get OpenEV to open even
without an image?  Or does OpenEV crash when you try to
open an image?
