[failed-to-dump]: Failed to dump Q12129 (Value must be at most 127 characters long.)

This didn't show up in Monday's JSON dump, so this is probably related to one of the recent edits:

The message is from the DecimalValue constructor, which is used in the QuantityValue constructor. This situation can happen when an edit is made via the API, and a quantity is submitted as a floating point number instead of a string. The code in the DecimalValue that converts floats to strings, but does this in a way so it can violate it's own limitations. Basically: The float is converted to a string with 100 decimal places. If the number before the decimal point is longer than 27 characters, the conversion fails with said error message.

This is very closely related to T155910: Erroneous digits in QuantityValue. I already prepared a fix in, which might solve both issues.
