I assume by 'load' you must be somehow using 'source' to read your file
into R. help("source") says:
If `options'("keep.source") is true (the default), the source of
functions is keep so they can be listed exactly as input. This
imposes a limit of 128K chars on the function size and a nesting
limit of 265. Use `option(keep.source = FALSE)' when these limits
might take effect: if exceeded they generate an error.
