Subject: practical limits on password length?

What are the practical limits on password length? Are they docuumented
anywhere? I assume that some of them are attack- and/or format-specific?

I read about changing params.h and generating a charset, so I decided to
frivolously specify 257 chars max as a test. Jumbo john compiled OK, but
the --make-charset has been running for an hour with no end in sight.
