New submission from Sérgio Surkamp <sergio at gruposinternet.com.br>:

If you try to create a MIMEText object from a very large string (test
case include a 40Mbytes string), the program just eat all the CPU and
with high memory usage or raise a MemoryError. Sometimes it just
deadlocks when using _charset = "iso-8859-1".

Use the submited file and the script to test the case.

** On Linux its very slow, but work's ** - the problem occour on a
FreeBSD installation.
