Nope, it is 256 due to this:

* This assumes that RULE_WORD_SIZE is small enough that length can't 
reach or
     rules_vars['l'] = length;
     rules_vars['m'] = (unsigned  char)length -1;

rules_vars['m'] is 255.  Then (rules_vars['m']+1) will convert to int, 
and 256 is the expression result.

This is a core (IIRC), not just an ASAN error
