This issue originally was reported against the Geany package in Fedora. It seems this is an issue concerning to Geany itself or maybe rather Scintilla, though. The issue is described very simple: The reporter loaded a file with 300MB of data in just one line. There maybe should be some sanity checks in Geany which handle this.
