 Actually, a) may be the problem.  Here is the implementation of XXX:

 The "err: 75" that was logged indicates errno 75 after a call to lstat(),
 which is EOVERFLOW.  On your 32-bit system, I think lstat() will fail like
 this on any files larger than 2GB.  I wonder if Mozilla has an open bug
 for this problem....
