The simplest solution is to just find a different XSLT processor, one that
implements tail recursion optimization. Saxon, for example.

You could rewrite the code either to use XSLT 2.0 string handling or to use
divide-and-conquer recursion, but unless there is something that ties you to
your current XSLT processor there is no need to change the code.

I didn't expect that answer... I guess that's encouraging.

I have tried the Java version of SaxonB 9-1-0-8j, but some links appeared to
be broken (or else something on my company proxy choked) on the SourceForge
relative to the most recent .zip of SaxonHE9-4 so I didn't try it before
today.  Since your reply, I tried some creative Googling and turned up a
download link that works.  I'll give try SaxonHE9-4-0-3J.zip a try.

Well, I tried SaxonHE9-4 and got:

$ tail -1 idiffout.csv | awk 'BEGIN { FS=","; } { print NF " vs " $9 " }' -
3954 vs 53392

I don't know if there is a better way to invoke the processor or not, nor if I
should try the .NET version instead.
I suppose it is possible that something else in the overall transform is to
blame, but the transform exploded in the same spot.
