I don't think this is really a bug.

I file with such enormously long lines can't reasonably be considered a text file.

Trying to import a survey csv file got the message:

error: Failed to read `C:\Users\xxxx\
xxxx.csv', because it contains a line over 16384 bytes long and
therefore appears not to be a text file.
