Some magic text takes forever to convert

Bug Description

Step to reproduce:

1. create a new txt file, paste in the following content all in one line:

--txt content start--

********************************************************************** 新年快乐新年快乐, 新年快乐新年快乐, 新年快乐新年快乐新年快乐, 新年快乐新年快乐新年快乐, 新年快乐 **********************************************************************

--txt content end---

Alternatively, you could use my attachment.

(There's nothing magic about the text, you could put them into google translator and see what they say.)

2. Drag the .txt into calibre, convert to epub.

3. The conversion job will never complete.

(I've actually found 3 different jobs that triggers the bug, but a conversion is the most common one.)
