Can you spot the problem ?
which states, in part: -
Check the fsize (maximum file size allowed) entry /etc/security/limits. Setting this to -1 will allow unlimited file sizes. You can also make changes via ulimit and possibly smit.
If you edit /etc/security/limits directly, you might have to reboot for the change to take effect; however, with ulimit you should not have to reboot.
Here's a link to the pubs for ulimit: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/pseries/v5r3/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.aix.cmds/doc/aixcmds5/ulimit.htm
'ulimit -a' will print the current user resource limits.
'ulimit -f <num>' will set the file size limit, where <num> is the file size limit in blocks.
This was what I did: -
$ cp limits limits.original
$ vi limits
< fsize = -1
> fsize = 2097151
