Is there a potential error with a self-xRef and nesting on?
I worked on a file for a while with some xRef's (TitleBlock, MasterPlan (x3) and a self-xRef. It was only 533K when I transferred it to my draftsman. He drafted a while, then ended up locking up his computer and the file was over 46M, very unusual for our projects.
I'm wondering if there is an issue with a self xRef without a clip window, so it sees itself repeatedly. Correct?
Each group of marks is a bunch of xRef insertion points.

Nesting wasn't on in my machine; not sure if it was on in his. The problem appeared in his and replicated in mine. I think I was sloppy and did a self-xref on the layer being self x-ref'd, but I usually use a clip-cube window. I wonder if he turned it off or it didn't carry through to his machine?
