[erlang-bugs] ei_decode_list_header and big lists

What if...

I send a big list (eg, 80000 elements) to a C-port ?

According to
http://www.erlang.org/doc/man/ei.html#ei_decode_list_header

the list length will be stored into an "int",
which obviously will lead to strange behavior ?

Am I missing something ?
