Just filed that as issue #158:

Even though that button isn't large enough to handle more than 8 digits,
you still can enter such revision numbers and it will work (it just
isn't shown properly).

And let's do some math:
- assume a commit every 5 minutes
- 8 digits max is 99999999

99999999 * 5 minutes = 499999995 minutes = 8333333.25 hours =
347222.21875 days = 951.29375 years.

I think we're save ;)
