There should be no limitations - but there can be bugs. These bugs are
almost invariably memory-management related - either on the client or
on the server.

Several bugs on memory management have been fixed recently and I've
unfortunately lost count which still exist.

But, be sure to run the latest client from the Subversion repository -
and I think you should not run into any bigger problems. If you do,
try to work out a reproduction recipe - any bugs found are quite
important and will probably be fixed as soon as possible.
