This is not a problem with tramp per se, but with emacs. It has a
maximum buffer size (which is I think something like 2^26
characters). Your 210 meg file is too large for it. 

Try it locally. You would still have the same problem. 

There is essentially no way around this, other than bad hacks, like
splitting the file up into two.
