The problem is that you are trying to disassemble data blocks as code.
DiStella has a bug for illegal opcodes making the lines to long.

You can either try to bugfix DiStella (just replace 15 with something
higher here: for (charcnt=0;charcnt<15-strlen(nextline);charcnt++) )
use a configuration file where exclude the data part from disassembling.

Have fun!
