Sure, obviously the names aren't exactly the same, but the fact is that
it blew up when I eval'd the above two sexps and then called
`wubi-load-local-phrases'. If I changed the name of the .el file, or
eval'd the second sexp but not the first (ie set wubi-phrases-file-el
but left wubi-phrases-file as its default), it loaded okay. Beats me!

Yup, you'll need a file. I've done a little testing. It looks like
everything loads fine until the file reaches 4095 lines. I'm attaching
the txt file, of exactly 4095 lines, and a test file, to be run as emacs
-Q -l wubi-test.el (the paths need to be changed). Running that test
will produce the .el file, then attempt to load the phrases, and then in
my case segfault.

Hope that's enough!
