[BioC] Full error messages?

Dear Ed

from the man page of 'options':

  'warning.length': sets the truncation limit for error and warning
           messages.  A non-negative integer, with allowed values
           100...8170, default 1000.

8172 (decimal) is 2000 (hex), not sure where that limitation comes from, 
but probably from the 1980s.

Best wishes
