this might be a non-issue, but I discovered the problem when trying to
create a file with a huge number of lines to test how Vim responded
to...something. I don't exactly remember what I was trying to test,
only that I gave up on having Vim create the file and instead did it
using command-line tools (a huge pain on Windows), and then eventually
gave up on testing in general because Vim was taking so long to
manipulate the file.
