ovpn profile import fails with "line too long" error

Description

Importing a specific .ovpn file in OpenVPN Connect on Android and OpenVPN on IOS results in an error "line too long." The error presented in the Android app logs is:

EVENT: PROFILE_MERGE_EXCEPTION info='line too long'

The same profile is able to be imported into TunnelBlick? for Mac. The options in the .ovpn file are below, followed by the certs and keys pasting:

client
dev tun
proto udp
remote xxx.xxxxxxx.xx 1195
resolv-retry infinite
nobind
persist-key
persist-tun
mute-replay-warnings
ns-cert-type server
key-direction 1
cipher AES-128-CBC
comp-lzo
verb 1
mute 20

Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be much documentation about what may cause this error.

Problem solved - .ovpn file has to be saved in "Unix" newline format (Unix line breaks). It was saved in "Mac" format, which caused the error.
