[erlang-questions] Dynamic Code and Atoms

I am finding that when I dynamically build a function with
a very large number of clauses the emulator crashes while
compilig (cmpile:forms/2) after hitting the atom table limit.
Looking at a erl_crash_.dump I can see that it was filling up
the atom table with 'corN' where N is an ever increasing number.

Is this a design limitation?
