I don't know about Allow from specifically, but often 'lines' are  
limited internally to eithe 255 characters or 1024 characters. Are you  
around any of those limits?

There's no reason to have one massive Allow from line when you can  
have as many as you want. I tend to group like cases together.

   Allow from
   Allow from
   Allow from xx.xx.0.0/16
   Allow from yy.yy.yy.0/24
   Allow from zz.zz.zz.zz
