Hey, Thomas.
Something similar happened to me about a month or so ago.  After adding
a shipping method I could admin other sections but not
shipping - it would cause a serious drain on my server (I don't think it
died, but restarting manually didn't help,  I compared my shipping.asc
to the one in construct and saw that my file had a long line of nonsense
characters at the beginning. I removed it and everything - including my
own shipping additions - were fine.  This line was what accounted for
the large size of shipping.asc.  Hope this helps!
