Error trying to unload file with LOB column

We are running DB2 V7.1 on OS/390. We are attempting to run the DB2 UNLOAD UTILITY on a table with a LOB column and are getting the following error:
 DSNU297I -BWD DSNUUUCA - COMPOSITE RECORD SIZE TOO LARGE FOR SAPBWD.REPOSRC
We have tried other permutations (i.e. no listdef, unloading to tape, etc.) and nothing seems to work. With the record size being greater than 32768, are we prohibited from doing this?
You are correct, IBM's utilities cannot be used for LOBs of that size.
