This makes it look like line 8479575 is, all by itself, wider than 1GB.
If that's really what your data is, you'll need to find some other
representation --- Postgres can't cope with fields wider than 1GB.
(And in practice you don't want to be coming anywhere close to that
If you didn't think you had individual rows that wide, maybe this is
due to some sort of quoting or escaping problem in your data file.
