In `darcs add` - Darcs 2.5.2 - It seems there is a 2+GB limit on file 
size, which causes the index to get set with data that darcs can not 
processes later in revert/record. Assuming later versions are similarly 
affected after IRC conversation.

Deleting _darcs/patches/pending and _darcs/index resolves the issue as 
far as I can tell.

This should be easy to fix with a slight change in the index format.
