yes.  I suppose it was generated by a script.

I've gotten as far as seeing that there's some problem like memory being
overwritten (fixed one variable that was clobbered, but haven't gotten
close to the problem).  It's dying about 2/3 through the file (2000
lines) - and since the file is simply a long list, there's no indication
that trimming the test down to a small file would make it break.

The 2.8.4 version also breaks on this file.
