We need to split up lines to avoid some problems w/ very long lines. 
Apparently we are not doing that on the utf-8 character boundaries. 
I'll try to fix that and will in any case increase the split threshold 
since I think it could safely be quite a bit larger than the current 
value of 1000.

Thanks for reporting this.
