Once you confirm to copy/rename a huge file, its contents is loaded into
a temporary buffer. And yes, if it's too large, memory is exhausted.
There's nothing Tramp could know in advance, and prevent it.

If you handle regularly such huge files, Tramp's "scp" method is
superiour to "ssh".

I've pushed the patch to both Emacs and Tramp repositories, closing the bug.
