Yes, that is, as far as a Coda client is concerned, perfectly normal

As long as the file is being written to, the kernel gives no indication
of the filesize to the userspace Coda client. Once the file is closed
the client throws out anything it can, writes the dirty data back to the
server and gets rid of that big file as soon as possible.

Ofcourse the file is much too big to fit in the cache, so the client
refuses to ever fetch it back for you.

Pretty much, the only other alternative is to `rm' the file.
