st: limits on stsplit

When I try to stsplit my data I keep getting the error message 
"too many values". The dataset consists of 10 variables with 
13,360 non-missing observations (14,616 obs in total). When I 
stset I'm informed that I have 24,100 total "at risk" times. 

I'm running Intercooled Stata 8.2 on a Windows XP professional 
PC with plenty of memory allocated to Stata (over 1G free with 
the data loaded).

By incrementally cropping observations I can get the data to 
stsplit properly when the observations drop below about 8,000. 

Does anyone know of any way I can get Stata to stsplit the 
full data set? (Or how to do it in stages?)

Thanks very much for your help,
