I've done the fix (using pos_type everywhere but the Read() method), but no
luck. Same symptoms when I download the file. Just to be sure I deleted and
recreated my bbstored account and started everything (including a rebuilt
bbstored) from scratch.

As an additional data point, before I recreated everything to test the fix,
I started seeing another error. The large file had been modified and
bbackupd was now reporting:

Backup object failed, error when reading [large file path here]
Error code when uploading was (4/11), BackupStore BadBackupStoreFile

Any further suggestions of where I might look? I appreciate the help,
