We can even reproduce it with the "file:" protocol!

 final String sourceURI = "file:/Users/tcurdt/90MB";
 final String targetURI = "file:/Users/tcurdt/test";

 final FileSystemManager fsManager = VFS.getManager();

 final FileObject toDownload = fsManager.resolveFile(sourceURI);
 final InputStream is = toDownload.getContent().getInputStream();

 final FileObject toUpload = fsManager.resolveFile(targetURI);
 final OutputStream os = toUpload.getContent().getOutputStream();, os);

Can you point me into the right direction ...haven't had
a closer look into the vfs codebase yet.

...naaa ...that's not even a workaround
we are talking about biiiiiig files! :-)
