It works, but only with programs that don't check what filesystem they're 
running on. VirtualDub checks whether the file is being saved on a FAT or 
NTFS drive by retrieving the filesystem properties and refuses to save beyond 
2GB if it's reported as FAT. (Obviously, on a real Windoze system, saving 
beond 2GB on FAT would fail.)

My hack simply changed Wine's response so that it reported the simulated 
volume to be an NTFS one.
