Neo4j Tried to read a field larger than buffer size 2097152

neo4j Tried to read a field larger than buffer size 2097152. A common cause of this is that a field has an unterminated quote and so will try to seek until the next quote, which ever line it may be on. This should not happen if multi-line fields are disabled, given that the fields contains no new-line characters

Hi,

I got the same error like the following when i tried to import csv as node through py2neo.

py2neo.errors.DatabaseError: [Statement.ExecutionFailed] Tried to read a field larger than buffer size 2097152. A common cause of this is that a field has an unterminated quote and so will try to seek until the next quote, which ever line it may be on. This should not happen if multi-line fields are disabled, given that the fields contains no new-line characters. 

The cypher that i used is ¨

USING PERIODIC COMMIT
LOAD CSV WITH HEADERS FROM 'file:///file.csv' AS row
CREATE (: labelName{ id: toInteger(row.id), ....});

Regards,
yhchen
