Default Save Operation Failed error after decompile

I'm beginning to lose the will to live over this one. I've been merrily developing a large application (ADP) in Access 2000 and 2003 over the past 5 years. The size of the ADP is now around 30MB and it contains the following quantities of objects:

23 modules
424 forms (409 with modules)
296 reports (284 with modules)

My problem is that whenever I use the decompile switch and then recompile I get the dreaded "The Save Operation Failed" message on saving the code and the whole ADP is then rendered corrupt. My only option is to create a new ADP and import each object type (Modules first, then forms then reports) separately, compiling as I go. This seems to work OK but when I open a file I've been working on in Access 2000 on an Access 2003 PC it seems to decompile it by itself and then won't compact/save. Does anyone have any ideas about this? I've searched Google and can't come up with any reasonable suggestions.
