  I'm not sure if this is the correct place for this, but I found an issue
with LuaJIT (2.0.0 beta 2) and it relates to my insanely large Lua script
[1][2].  The script generates a really huge array (73,011 items).  Lua 5.1.4
handles it fine, but when I attempted to use LuaJIT on it, I got the

luajit: default.lua:352835: function at line 2357 has more than 65536
stack traceback:
        [C]: in function 'dofile'
        showmsg.lua:3: in main chunk
        [C]: ?

  Lua itself limits a function to around 2^17 or 2^18 constants, so I worked
around that limit.  Is the 65,536 limit in LuaJIT a bug, or a design

  -spc (It's all string data, by the way ... )

	It's an 82Mb file, by the way.
