Has anyone tried recording video+ on SDHC cards? No one seems to have announced the file size and time limits on SDHC cards so what are they?

I'm asking if one video's filesize limit on SDHC is 2 or 4 GB and if the time limit is one hour

I've only now seen the line about the 8GB SDHC test.
Howcome other cameras can record up to 4 GB on SDHC and CHDK cameras can't?
what I do know is that the limitations are:
2GB for FAT16 (SD)
and 4GB for FAT32 (SDHC). that's why some cameras have a 4 GB limit so I think that the presumption is wrong that Video+ has a 2 GB limit on FAT32 formatted SDHC cards because of the filesystem. I'm wondering if the filesystem on that card really was FAT32.
and indeed NTFS doesn't have a limit but is not used in cards yet.
don't get me wrong, I'm happier with the 2 GB limit even on SDHC (which I may get one day) than the 1 GB limit but I thought that now the limit on SDHC would be 4 GB and I'm wondering why it isn't.

Can somebody with an SDHC card make sure that it is formatted in FAT32 and run a maximum video filesize test?
