Not converting mobipocket to epub

Trying to convert a file I'd originally downloaded as text from Project Gutenberg. The file was originally downloaded as text then converted to mobipocket (file type *.prc for my old PDA) using mobipocket's software. Currently attempting to convert the mobipocket file to epub for use with Stanza on my iPod Touch. I get the error:

calibre.ebooks.oeb.transforms.split.SplitError: Could not find reasonable point at which to split: crsto12.html Sub-tree size: 2563 KB

(There's much more in the error report but this seems to be the key problem.)

Any ideas?

TEMPORARILY increase the split size under EPUB output from 240 K
to something quite a bit larger.
Now do the convert
Change it back to 240K (many readers choke on bigger)
convert again, except this time EPUB -> EPUB (select in upper corners)
