If Emacs doesn't know the size of the file (i.e., the fs says that the
file is 0 bytes long), then Emacs will only read the first 64K of the
file.  This was discussed in the bug report about how /proc files are
truncated by Emacs.

The fix proposed there (i.e., "read until you get to eof") would
probably fix this, too.
