From the tail(1) manpage:

  WARNINGS: Tails relative to end-of-file are stored in a 20-Kbyte buffer,
            and thus are limited in length.  Therefore, be wary of the
            results when piping output from other commands into tail.

For HP-UX 11.11, the 20K limitation is corrected by PHCO_24707.  For HP-UX
11.0 and earlier, GNU tail, part of the GNU textutils package, can be used
instead.
