The "memory fault" message is probably from your shell when it detects that
the xedit program aborted because the kernel caught it trying to go outside
of it's memory space.  This kind of problem is usually caused by a bad pointer
or by running off the end of an array.  Since you are trying to edit a large
file I would bet that xedit is running off the end of an array.

Anyway, UNIX *should* not panic no matter what your program tries to do.
