I updated a HTML file and included a data URL (base64 of an image) that resulted in a text line with about 10,000 characters. Nothing wrong with this, and browsers are OK with it, but Sourcetree crashes when this update is present. Maybe a problem with the diff window or some other processing.
The length of a line, no matter how big, should not crash Sourcetree. Maybe put ellipses into the display if the text is too long for the window.
