The patch that introduced the regression was not discussed and
it used a guessed limit afair.
The patch that fixed ticket #373 simply doubled the value to fix
a particular use-case.
After this patch that follows this logic, the possible allocation
is still a magnitude smaller than the original commit claims.
(I cannot test the failing case.)

Do you want me to revert?
Any better suggestions?

Thank you, Carl Eugen
