Hm, yes indeed. I can't recall why I made it 5 and not 16... or at least 15
since the bitmap value seems to be used as signed int a little too much and
that might cause some problem...

It's funny that we haven't noticed bigger problems with this from users. It
might be that it is a fairly unusual limit to actual hit in real life.

Have you tried to just bump it? Anyone else?
