Characters not displaying in a field?

I have a field (for a spellcheck) that contains 174,000 words - each on
a different line - and it works fine.

The field can hold up to about 64k of characters, IIRC, but can display 
a line correctly if the line is less than about 32K pixels before the 
soft line break.  This hits both limits.
