To be honest, this is more likely to be low RAM in the client
reading the file (it's a Windows client, isn't it ?). I recall that
Windows clients require a certain percentage of the file
size to allocate for the oplock RAM cache (or some such
thing - Windows client internals aren't my strong suit,
except how they behave on the network).

What is the client RAM size ?
