I don't think so.
It's not only the supercard MMC driver.
It's also the supercard DLDI + Block driver.
So the problem might be in
a) the block layer
b) the vfat layer
c) the uClibc layer
d) the shell tab completion
I don't think it is in the block or vfat layer. If the linux kernel is
not able to deal with 2 GByte SD cards, this bug would be fixed soon.
But there is no entry in the changelogs, and my home PC is dealing with
2 GByte cards fine.
So I think the problem is in uClibc or Busybox.
Can somebody test with a 2 GByte CF card?

And I think that ext2 should be avoided as far as possible because it is
a burden for each user which has no linux desktop PC.
We're back to the times when men were men
and wrote their own device drivers.
