You said the string is 60 - 70 thousand chars. So I figured maybe up to 
65536 works OK, and over that you are getting some kind of 
field-wrapping effect, and getting only the amount BEYOND the 65536 limit.

But it was only a guess :-) 
There are some other limits (see   docs / Topics / Containers, 
variables, etc. / Memory limits) that could perhaps be relevant.
