Actually, there is a bug in 1.8.0 FSFS servers whereby it's not possible
to retrieve properties larger than 16MB. The fix will be included in

http://svn.apache.org/r1494437 (r1491770 on trunk)

The OP doesn't use a 1.8.0 server so that appears to be unrelated to his
problem (but mentioning this anyway for the archives).
