I tried it here (mtools-3.9.11-5.fc10.i386), and got no maxsize problem (I
did get a different error about the FAT, but that's because I've only the
boot sector).

Just to make sure, if you don't mind, could you send me the 15000 first
sectors (count=15000) of that disk, that should be enough for a successful
mlabel on my side.
