Lexique full?

Ah, sorry, this is really a hard limit in the current ACEDB code.  We 
use 32 bits for a key for an object, 8 bits for the class and 24 for the 
index of an object in the class.  It would be a very major restructuring 
to change this.  You'll have to rethink your design I am afraid, or 
rewrite the acedb kernel from the ground up.
