Is there a character limit on the field type "multiple lines of text"?

We are running tests and it seems if you enter more than about 200 words (we're using lorum ipsum to test) into the comments field submission fails.  It reloads the form with all fields blank and highlighted in red and a message saying "Please fill in all the required fields"

There are no limits set outside of the standard HTML (form) / browser / web server limits.  However, I noticed that the ajax method (unfortunately) uses the GET method which is subject to general URI length limitations.

I'll work on changing this to POST as well, which will correct the problem for lengthy inputs. Meanwhile, if you expect longer input, you could either ask your visitor to upload a file, or disable Ajax for the time being. It works fine in normal (read: non Ajax mode).

PS: I'm happy to send you a beta release of 5.2 as soon as it's fixed.
