Thanks, but I have already tracked this down, and added a test to exit
properly.  There is no point in trying to have bigger limits for the time
being.  Merely passing to int is wrong, since the parsers are expected
not to blow up the memory.  That's why shorts are used, and it is on

I insist: I doubt very much that your problems are related to that limitation,
many 1.30x have very serious problems which are now fixed.  Please, try it.
(if you don't use CVS, I'll warn you as soon as another snapshot is made).
