"Large" Binary Files triggering 503 Response

Hi all-

I'm relatively new to varnish, but i haven't seen/stumbled upon a similar situation in the last few months of mailing list archives. I'm having a weird issue where below approximately 200k, varnish returns binary files just fine, but above that it returns a 503 page. According to the log, apache is returning a 200 status code from the backend. I'm not really sure what to make of it, but it looks like the exact error being thrown back is:

11 FetchError c straight read_error: 0 0 (Remote closed connection)

I've included my configs and the associated log segment. Hopefully someone can shed some light on it. The server version information is:
Varnish Server:
RHEL6.2
Varnish 3.0.2 (from the EL5 RPM)

Apache Server:
RHEL6.2
Apache 2.2.x

The varnish command is(from /etc/sysconfig/varnish):
DAEMON_OPTS="-a 80\
-f /etc/varnish/default.vcl \
-T 127.0.0.1:6082 \
-t 120 \
-w 10,5000,120
-u varnish -g varnish \
-S /etc/varnish/secret \
-p thread_pool_add_delay=2 \
-p thread_pools=4 \
-p thread_pool_min=200 \
-p thread_pool_max=4000 \
-p cli_timeout=25 \
-p session_linger=60 \
-p sess_timeout=60 \
-s malloc,10G \
-s $file,/var/lib/varnish/varnish_storage.bin,15G"

The default config is:
backend default {
.host = "10.11.12.1";
.port = "80";
}
