The proxy is very "dumb" code, it relies almost exclusively on the 
filter code to do everything. As a result it's very unlikely this 
problem is in proxy.

The filter code behaves differently depending on where the data is 
coming from, eg an area in memory, or a file on a disk. As a result it 
is quite possible that a large file from disk works and a large file 
from proxy does not.
