I can reproduce the problem on Windows 7 64 bits:

* Run a cmd shell as Administrator (mklink is a privileged command).

* Navigate to a directory with a text file larger than 64 KB (let's
  suppose that the file is named foo.txt).

* mklink bar.txt foo.txt.

* runemacs -Q bar.txt

* The file appears truncated in Emacs.

Very odd.
