Is your database 64 K block size?

Has anyone had an issue with MAX* columns within DBA_TEMP_FILES being

I've got one temp tablespace, type temporary, defined for all users and
the default at the database level ( on Tru64).  This temp
tablespace has 6 tempfiles defined, each created with a maxsize of
40,001M (see results of an 'ls -l' below):

-rw-rw----   1 oracle   dba      41944121344 May 29 20:43

-rw-rw----   1 oracle   dba      41944121344 May 29 21:41

-rw-rw----   1 oracle   dba      41944121344 May 29 20:56

-rw-rw----   1 oracle   dba      41944121344 May 29 21:42

-rw-rw----   1 oracle   dba      41944121344 May 29 21:01

-rw-rw----   1 oracle   dba      41944121344 May 29 21:42

Yet when I query DBA_TEMP_FILES I get the following:

column file_name format a40

SELECT file_name

     , bytes/1024/1024 mb

     , maxbytes/1024/1024 max_mb

  FROM dba_temp_files

 ORDER BY file_name;

FILE_NAME                                        MB     MAX_MB

/u02/oradata/gmdwit/temp_two03.dbf            40001      .0625

/u03/oradata/gmdwit/temp_two04.dbf            40001      .0625

/u04/oradata/gmdwit/temp_two05.dbf            40001      .0625

/u05/oradata/gmdwit/temp_two06.dbf            40001      .0625

/u06/oradata/gmdwit/temp_two01.dbf            40001      .0625

I checked the view definition for DBA_TEMP_FILES and it appears that the
value for MAXBYTES is pulled from SYS.X$KTFTHC.KTFTHCUSZ, which is
apparently also wrong.

Has anyone else run into this?  It's sure hard to write a script to
detect a low temp space issue when I can't determine the max size of my
temp space.
