Scratch that, I found a worse bug with the new line numbering code was broken by \include{}

Revision 220 fixes the incorrect line numbers, but the column number is still wrong (as are the errors potentially).

Revision 215 adds a warning when a file with long lines is encountered. The warning is only emitted once per file so as to not be too annoying.

It might also be helpful as a stopgap to allow increasing BUFSIZ (well some new constant) to allow bigger lines.

Lines over BUFSIZ cause problems:

1. The line number doesn't get updated until it reads a newline so line numbers are reported incorrectly for all but the last chunk of a line.

2. Warnings will be incorrect e.g. if a command is broken across a chunk

At the very least we need to issue a warning that there might be problems the first time we come across this in a file/set of files.
