MyISAM and table size

Hi all!
I'm running MySQL 4.1.7 on WinXP/NTFS and set "myisam_data_pointer_size=5"
in "my.ini". SHOW VARIABLES confirms that the pointer size was increased. But
SHOW TABLE STATUS says that my MyISAM tables can grow upto 4GB only.
I expected 1TB result.

P.S. I know that the main way to increase MyISAM table size limit is to specify
AVG_ROW_LENGTH and MAX_ROWS on a table create. But if I understand right
MySQL manual, the above (myisam_data_pointer_size) method should work too.
