This does not really answer the question.

Was your REPORT 5GB because it had a single file > 4GB or because it had
tens of thousands of small files?  Mike's question is about the latter.

Does Serf only fail when decompressing a single large file, or also if the
entire REPORT response happens to be > 4 GB?  The latter probably would be
a much more common problem to run into if it can happen.
