dart:io's File class doesn't handle large files (files at least 2 GIB) properly in readAsBytes() and (readAsBytesSync() has related if different problems). Instead it attempts to return an invalid array of negative size (-4096).

For instance, make a big file:

truncate -s 4387733994 big

Then this program shows the problem:

import 'dart:io';

main() async {
  print(await new File("big").readAsBytes());

Which fails like this:

tcmalloc: large alloc 4387741696 bytes == 0x55ded9554000 @  0x55ded653caa7 0x55ded6544819 0x55ded652ad41 0x55ded67ba171 0x55ded67b713a 0x55ded67b78cc 0x55ded6904e3d 0x55ded6904cd4 0x55ded6860019 0x7ff96cfa2494
