You are using a damaged map. The MPQ archive generation script vex used is not very robust so the slightest damage to the MPQ archive (even from the program itself having optimized it already) will cause stupid results like the map to gain an infinite size until the file system can not longer support it.

Also make sure you download the lattest version of the tool (mirrors like here probably have an old version) and run it as an administrator (as it might have access permission problems to the file).
