Hi Emanuel, try setting the --max-diff-input-lines flag to a higher value. In
the next version we'll let "0" mean "unlimited" as well as having a --no-max
value to disable all such limits.
If you are satisfied with this, please close this bug - otherwise please
suggest something concrete that we can do to satisfy you.
(The reason for this input limit is that diff(1) reads the whole file into
memory, so runs out of memory for very large files.)
