OK, but I think that a clearer error message, such as "Page too large",
would be better. Alternatively, make ViewVC suppress links yielding
such issues, if possible.

FYI, I hoped to see there a "Diff to previous" link to the patch
corresponding to the changeset r1814248, instead of having to look
at every diff for individual files. Otherwise I cannot find such a
link. This is rather annoying.
