First thing to try is to see if this issue is still present when using
a more recent client. Can you try the latest from the 1.7.x series, or
the brand new 1.8.0?

I have never heard of this issue (I always thought there was no limit
on the size of a property value). So I'd first try to see if this
issue is still present with the most recent releases.

Note also that the 1.6 series is actually not suppored anymore (since
the release of 1.8 last week) [1]. But that doesn't mean we won't try
to help you of course.
