I believe that the manual says that this is due to the 16MB limit on a
file's resource fork. The catalogue is stored in the Resource fork, so you
get the limit. I guess if Dantz changed the location of the catalogue, it'd
remove the limit.

Please don't assume the above is true - I just recall reading something
about the catalogue being stored in the resource fork in the manual when I
was reading it for the first time after finding that my server's hard drive
needed to be restored. That was the first time I actually *needed*
Retrospect, and I['m happy to say that it worked almost flawlessly!!
