Hmm, I'm sorry, I don't have any great insights into this problem... I 
was wondering, however, if you might have some error message in your 
dmesg log of the server when the error occurs?  that might be helpful.

btw, usually, and people say large files, they are talking about 2G, or 
at least several hundred MB.  I think if this is supported at all, you 
should be getting more than your 1 KB :)
