So, because I read that spaces in folder names cause problems I put the input file into a folder which had no spaces in its folder names. Same issue. Didn't change anything. Is this a FoxPro bug, or did I do something wrong?

As David said, the error message implies file content not file name.
"Line is too long" means a line is longer than 8192. (see error message 18)

I would check out your input file with a simple program like this:

*	Max line length is 8192
local array atxt(1)
alines(atxt,lcFilePathName)
for i=1 to alen(atxt)
	if len(atxt(i)) > 8192 then
		messagebox("Line "+ltrim(str(i))+" is too long")
	endif
next
