I ingested a 3Gb file into Fedora via Fez. The file ingested into Fedora successfully, however Fedora throws an exception when attempting to fetch the file via HTTP (I believed it's an OutOfMemoryException, but I could be mistaken).
What I would have expected to happen in an exception situation would be an HTTP 500 status returned, however instead of this Fedora returns a 0 byte file with the same name of the requested file.
This then has a flow-on effect for front-end tools such as Fez which proceed to run other software over the file (such as JHOVE) and therefore reports the file size as 0 bytes.
