May be the webserver. Some, including mine (Apache derivate...) cannot
handle large files on 32-bit platforms because they use long instead
of off_t proper for indicating file sizes (and they happily send a
wrong file size to the client instead of none at all).

Yay for having to rewrite other people's Bash scripts because bash
suddenly stopped supporting the bash extensions they make use of
