Yes, but it returns a correct, useful error message. Obviously there
is a system imposed upper limit of command line length on all systems,
even if it's 256MB or whatever. So relying on these overlong command
lines is highly non-portable anyway and at least Cygwin now returns
the correct message if it comes to that.
