The term must have gone stale, how did you transport it? :-)

Normally size doesn't matter :-) as long as you have enought memory
for it.

    Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.2 [source] [hipe] [threads:0]
    Eshell V5.2  (abort with ^G)
    1> A=lists:duplicate(1000000, {a,b,c}).   
    2> size(term_to_binary(A)).              
    3> A = binary_to_term(term_to_binary(A)).
