Did you actually replace the 'giant_file' placeholder with the path to
*your* giant file? The error message indicates that you didn't, or that
something else went wrong during the filtering.

You can use 'git log' to look for commits touching particular pathnames,
making it easy to verify that a file has been eradicated.

git log --all -- path/to/big-honking-file.zip
