Problem:

Using ACUCOBOL-GT version 8.1.2.1 when pasting text into certain entry fields the Runtime crashes.  Before crashing it sometimes repeatedly gives the message “Too many lines”.

Resolution:

This is a known issue that was fixed in Version 9.0.0.  Upgrading to version 9.0.0 or newer will resolve the error.

The underlying cause is when a single-line entry field has the MAX-LINES property set. MAX-LINES is intended for use only with multi-line entry fields and should not be used with single-line entry fields.  Removing the MAX-LINES property or setting MAX-LINES to 0 will also resolve the error.
