Problem with transferring trace data from ESA to Matlab

I’m trying to transfer the trace data from the the ESA (E4404B) to Matlab, using the “:TRAC:DATA? TRACE1” SCPI command. I send it on a GPIB connection to the ESA using “agt_query.m” from Agilent’s Matlab functions. This works fine while I use less than 5000 points on the sweep settings. When setting the number of points to a bit over 5000 and up to the maximum (8192), the Matlab crashes.
I'm using span 0 with long sweep times, so I need the maximum number of points in order to get satisfactory resolution.
