CSS halting site if bigger than 14.4K

P: n/a
Yesterday my site unexpectedly stopped loading. I tracked it down to
the CSS file for the site. When I commented it out, the site was okay.
When I put it back in, it was not. I tried connecting to the server
via Dreamweaver and opening the CSS file and received a download
error. I noticed that it was getting to 14.6K / 15.2K before failing.
So I went in via the command line and deleted from the end of the CSS
file until it was smaller than 14.6K. The site now works like a charm,
minus my missing style elements.

Next I tried creating a second style sheet (styles2.css), appending
the ~50 lines I had deleted, and linking to it in addition to the
original file. Again, the site stopped responding. I started cutting
out style elements and once I got beneath a certain threshold, the
site would start loading. It didn't matter which elements I cut, just
as long as I didn't have too many.

Any insight into what is going on here? Is there some kind of size
limit of CSS files? This is Apache/PHP on a Fedora Core 3 Linux box.

Thank you,
Kevin

1. Can you create an online example of this in action?
2. What browser do you check it with?
3. This works here: <http://rwasmus.nl/test.html>

So tell us the URL. We can't diagnose weird server-related stuff like
this without it.
