Thanks for the report. Was able to reproduce this for huge files split in 2G chunks. The hard coded sanity limit was too low.

While testing the code I noticed that on Linux it's pretty easy to exceed the usual limit of 1024 open files, which produces the appropriate error message.

The fix will go into 3.1.0 first, and later will show up in 3.0.x as well.
