32-bit PHP has quite a few problems with large files. I ran into an odd
one where I couldn't even get the dates from a file that was over 2GB! I
think you may be running into something similar here, where some value
that is needed to work with the file is going over the maximum that
32-bit can handle. 64-bit should fix the problem, but if you're in
doubt, you could try testing it on a VM first?
