Save large file problem

It shouldn't be trying to get it all into memory.  I don't recall any part
of MogileFS in particular that would try to do that.

But you are pushing what I'd consider reasonable sizes for MogileFS.  Big
files should be broken up into chunks.  (mogtool can help you out with
that)  I'd love it if MogileFS did the auto-chunking for you
transparently, but I haven't gotten around to that (or had a need).
