      Description

      Hello,
      I recently found that authenticated message size (GSSAPI in my case) is
      restricted to 65535.
      In cyrus-sasl there also is a restriction. According to gssapi.c it is
      0xFFFFFF=16777215.
      In qpid SaslFactory.cpp it is hard-coded to secprops.maxbufsize = 65535;
      There are also some places where maxFrameSize is set to
      65535. What does this mean? I know that there is a restriction on UDP
      message size, which is 64KB, but why there is a restriction to
      authenticated TCP/IP qpid message? There is not restriction to non-authenticated message though.
      Gordon Sim confirmed this as a bug and recommended to JIRA.
      Alexander.
      P.S. I did not indicate version, because this is in allversions
