Ok, I don't think I'm the first one to get this error, so:
Does anyone know how to fix it? I mean BESIDES splitting of building a huge wall inside your map...

Do you use any area portals? If you don't, there's your problem.

Problem is- I don't think I can use them in an open map like the cantina- they're only useful inside of buildings (at least to my knowledge)

Tigris: I'm not sure I understand you exactly, but this may help. In the worldspawn entity you can use the distancecull key. I have never tried it, but you can play with it a little. :) Unless you already did it...

True, but if you're not using them inside of your buildings, it puts a strain on the -vis, because even though the player doesn't see it, it still calculates all the stuff behind doors/walls/whatever. Try putting area portals in some of your buildings (unless you have already) and see if that helps.
