PmWiki tries to set a large limit - 1 MB - of text that could be processed in 
the markup engine, and if your text is larger, you have two options:

1. Add to config.php this line

   ini_set('pcre.backtrack_limit', 1000000*2); # *2 = twice the PmWiki default

   This may be impossible in some PHP installations. (In that case, the limit
   might be even lower than 1MB, and you may see some error messages.)

2. You could place several [@...@] around a number of smaller chunks of your
   text, with each chunk hopefully staying below the limit of your system.
