Not really sure but it could have to do with going over the "SFTP_MAX_MSG_LENGTH"

This is in the code:

/* Maximum packet that we are willing to send/accept */
#define SFTP_MAX_MSG_LENGTH   (256 * 1024)

[sftp-client.c]
     if (msg_len > SFTP_MAX_MSG_LENGTH)
        fatal("Received message too long %u", msg_len);
