[pdftex] utils.cpp - buffer overflow

I have a rather large document which contains Unicode
(Chinese) characters. The document itself is fully
correct, which I have tested by dividing it into
two documents and compiling them separately (which
worked out perfectly).

However, when I compile the large document I get:

"!pdfTeX error: (file c:/Program
Files/LaTeX/MiKTeX/fonts/truetype/cyberbit.ttf): buffer overflow at file
C:\work3\miktex-2.7-nmake\Programs\TeXAndFriends\pdftex\utils.cpp , line
==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!"

I assume that has something to do with memory consumption
because of the size of my document.
(which is too large for email [yes, even with zip] and too
Chinese for compiling without complex setup)
