Gzip fails when opening a file more than 2**32 bytes. This is a new issue in Python 3.5.

We hit this opening large neuroimaging files from the Human Connectome Project. See for more details.

When size is > 2**32, we get the following error on Python 3.5:

/usr/lib/python3.5/ in read(self, size)
    467             buf =
--> 469             uncompress = self._decompressor.decompress(buf, size)
    470             if self._decompressor.unconsumed_tail != b"":
    471                 self._fp.prepend(self._decompressor.unconsumed_tail)

OverflowError: Python int too large for C unsigned int
