curious, I wonder how long ago this broke? I'm not a huge expert in filebackend/filerepo, what seems to be breaking from a quick look is calculating the file size via filesize in FileBackendStore or FileOp.php ? perhaps @aaron can help too

du units are 1024 bytes each.

This is 4.00469 GiB, with is beyond the FileBackend limit.

In any case, the Swift limit is 5Gb (4.65661 GiB), though for compatibility, the subclass does not override FileBackendStore's 4GiB limit. It could be changed to do that. That would buy us a bit more size and would handle this file, I suppose.

Given this info, i'll close this bug and split the file. sigh.
