I don't know why you have this problem but 
speculation will not help, only tech-support. 
It could be a side-effect of other software 
on your system or your total use of memory.

The do-file editor limit is not on lines, but
on bytes. 

Practical solutions to file length problems are 
to split the do file or to use another editor. 
As concurrent threads indicate, there are many 
excellent ones to choose from.
