This is a carryover from DOS restrictions much earlier. There is some code
that was written that is seldom used in MSIE where the limit is something
like 64 characters or possibly less. I have notes on it in the Compendium
but I haven't been able to figure out what to search for or where I put
that little bit of information. In short, this is a bug inside MSIE that's
been carried over from MSIE 3.
