In Text Document tool, paragraph can only contain 65535 characters. I'm actually
not sure if someone would need it to contain more characters or not, I just
bumped into this limit while testing the snapshot and it took quite a few
minutes for me to realize that there was a limit in paragraph size, first I
thought that the program was so stupid that it could handle only 10 pages. So an
error message if the limit is reached might be nice, or even better, no limit. I
only tested this on Win2k, but I would make a guess that this affects all
operating systems.

Steps to repeat the problem:
for( i = 0; i < 65536; i++ )
  press button a from your keyboard

Now, try pressing for example b and you should realize that b won't appear to
your document.

ps. I used copy-paste to fill the 65535 character limit.

Sorry, could someone mark this as duplicate of Issue 17171, since I don't seem
to have enough privileges for that (or I don't know how).

( I really tried searching this issue, and I thought I was searching all bugs
which had word paragraph in them, but I wasn't, sorry again. )
