Well, it was the simplest solution :)

If you use Sanskrit 2003, as in your test file, it has no bold face,
that is why.

It happened to me too. I suppose it would not help to increase TeX's
memory. The only other solution I found was to insert manual breaks
with \- in the middle of very long graphical units.

Kind regards,
