I had the same problem with large files; that's because kernel.shmmax seems too small by default (256M).

Try adding the following to /etc/sysctl.conf and run 'sysctl -p' or reboot:

kernel.shmmax=536870912
[...]

This will double the value to 512M.
It fixed my problems. Try other values if this didn't work in your case.
