The magic wand tool works as intended and makes things very easy...although it picks up too many points along the polyline and adds lots of info to the mesh. We find the meshes become hard to manipulate the more points a mesh has.

Did some more experimenting. Polylines that have 16,000 or fewer segments (as defined by exploding the line) can be split, while polylines that have 25,000 or more segments cannot be split. Seems like a bug.
However, even the larger polylines can be magic wanded into splines, and the splines can be split. Seems like a work-around.
