FB6: Search box entry - is there a length limit?

What's the limit to the length of the search string that can be used in the Search box?

The only limit is the one imposed by the browser on which the search is being performed.

In IE8, my excessively-long search was truncated to 2484 characters.

So, no, FogBugz does not have a limit, but because we pass the search string as an argument in the URL, there's a browser-imposed limit.
