[svlug] Hosting Large Files via HTTP

Basically, I'm hosting some very large files ( > 1GB) on an Apache 2.0
server. Get requests for those files are met with a 403 'Forbidden'.
Similarly, the files don't appear to autoindex, in fact, the presence of
such a file in a particular directory will supress autoindexing of all
files in the directory.
Does this sound familar to anyone? Is this a limitation of the protocol?
Of apache? My kernel?
The server error makes some sense; that being, the user (in my case
'apache') doesn't have permission to read files larger than a certain
size. However, I've never heard of that type of access restriction. Has
anyone encountered this sort of issue?
