The exception happened in an Ansible YAML file, but I managed to reproduce it with the following simplified case.

- test:
    - test: test
        - name: test
          content: |
            {% this line is really really really really really really really long %}
$ yamllint --version
yamllint 1.4.0

$ yamllint test.yml
  1:1       warning  missing document start "---"  (document-start)
  6:81      error    line too long (84 > 80 characters)  (line-length)

$ yamllint -d relaxed test.yml

Thanks @danielkza.

This bug was introduced last week by pull request #17.

I'll write a fix and publish a new version!
