You are running into limits on the size of a function body.  You can't
safely make the body longer than about 2700 bytes in 6.5.*.  The limit
is about 8K in 7.0, and 7.1 will have effectively no limit.

You really should upgrade ;-).  In the meantime, your only alternative
is to write shorter functions.  Try splitting the work into multiple
functions...
