In an org file I have a source code block to convert entries into and generate a recutils file

#+begin_src sh?? :file SomeFile.rec
cat << EOF
# -*- mode: rec -*-

#### Begin recutils file

Approximately 770 records in recutils format each with about 20 entries; over 17,000 lines including line feeds or carriage returns


The following error is produced:

Starting new Ispell process /usr/bin/aspell with en_US dictionary...
executing Sh code block...
Wrote /tmp/babel-k8j93s/ob-input-LL2cYo
Error reading results: (user-error Region is longer than ???org-table-convert-region-max-lines??? (999) lines; not converting)
Code block produced no output.

I admit that I have not evaluated this code block since last October.At that time the SomeFile.rec file was produced, as expected. However, the size of the entries has not changed and now the above error results.

I modified my init.el file to include

(setq org-table-convert-region-max-lines 20000)

closed emacs, etc. (load-file init.el did not change the default 999 to 20000)

When I C-c C-c'ed the code block again the process hung. I confirmed that org-table-convert-region-max-lines was set to 20000.

Is org-table-convert-region-max-lines?? supposed to be invoked and if so what should I modify?

Version information

Org mode version 9.2.5 (release_9.2.5-488-g9ddba9 @ /usr/local/share/org-mode/lisp/) GNU Emacs 27.0.50 (build 57, x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 3.24.10) of 2019-08-20
