If you're mentioning hundred of megabytes it might be possible that
the Ruby instance is not able to handle the file properly.

Would be great if you can isolate this to a real minimum mongrel
handler example instead of a Rails application.

I had successfully uploaded big files with mongrel, but honestly never
tried to upload 200mb or similar because will be suboptimal.
