KDevelop can't load project: "too large document"?

Sigh... never mind. For some reason, if I pipe the output straight to
`wc` (which is how I was measuring), it just quits after 198885 bytes.
If I redirect to a file instead, I'm getting the same sizes as KDevelop
(104 MiB and 3.6 MiB with 3.10 and master, respectively).

Repeating the experiment with some other projects, I get:

              3.10     master
KDevelop:   4.6 MiB   2.9 MiB
QtWebKit:   869 KiB   696 KiB
VTK:         13 MiB   4.8 MiB

This does suggest there is something a bit pathological about KWIVER
w.r.t. backtraces...
