After further investigation, the regression started in Gradle 1.12, and happens as soon as we use one samba mount point that points to a Windows OS: the stat command returns an Inode that's bigger than 32bit, hence the error 75 (Value too large for defined data type).
(please bear with me on the following as I have VERY little experience with g++ compiler)

The fix is to us the compiler option -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 so that the stat struct handles 64bit for the Inode value.
(see http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/programming-9/problem-with-stat-on-cifs-852983/#post4208525)

This effectively fixes the bug for me, but I don't know if it could have negative implications. If it doesn't, I suppose the same option should be used for OSX, but unfortunately I have no way of testing it.
I created a pull request: https://github.com/adammurdoch/native-platform/pull/7

Out of curiosity, was there a change in your build platform between version 0.7 and 0.8 of native-platform that could explain the regression? there doesn't seem to be anything really different between the two versions regarding the call to stat?

Edit: I should probably mention that all tests were done on 32bit OSes (Ubuntu and Debian)
