This is a kernel/glibc issue as well.  At any rate, any modern 
filesystem should be capable of handling 19GB files.  XFS is certainly 
alot more capable of handling very large files (many terrabytes).

I suspect this is some kind of caching problem for you, where you're 
using up all the memory+swap at 4GB.

Watching it without a index works fine all the way through.
