Bug Description

Workstation:
OS: Kubuntu 14.04
System: Intel Core i7-4770k, 32GB RAM
Inkscape Kubuntu 14.04 stock packages

Storage:
OS: Ubuntu server 14.04
System: Intel Xeon E3 1240L, 16GB RAM, storage is running ZFS

Connection:
NFSv4 over gigabit LAN, Ubuntu/Kubuntu 14.04 stock packages

Yesterday I created a fairly large (14.2MB) SVG with inkscape and saved it via NFS on my storage array.
Today when I tried to open it directly, inkscape says "Failed to open...". On the console, I see this:

When I copy the same file to the local hdd, inkscape opens it without problems.
Other (smaller) files from the storage, inkscape also opens just fine.

@sgofferj - Is your file saved as compressed SVG (.svgz)?

No, it's uncompressed.

The problem exists with Inkscape 0.91, too.

I don't know if this is a strict condition, but my observation is that I can open files from the gui up to a file size of 9.5MB, larger files I can sometimes (but not always) open using the terminal.
The error message is a bit different from the one above, but I guess that depends on the content of the specific file.

I do have the same problem with Inkscape 0.91, both for big files that contain images or large paths.

For instance, after generating an svg file with matplotlib and saving it , I cannot open it with Inkscape from network file system, but from /tmp/ works out.

This is the error message I get:

manuel@tatio:~> inkscape /home/manuel/sorting2.svg

Please test the change thoroughly. If no regressions are found I think this would be a good candidate for backporting to 0.92.x.
