Okay, I had a quick look. There are stuff repeated over and over and over and
over in this file... I'm not entirely sure how these things work.
I've seen similar things happen earlier, not to this extreme though. For

If you got an old .MusE file (which you must have, otherwise I don't
understand how this could happen) try delete it, recreate it if you wish.
