Task Subject - Picklist option limits

Hi all,


On the Task object, you can suggest Subjects (Setup --> Customize --> Activities --> Task Fields --> Subject --> Task Subject Picklist Values)


Is there a limit to the number of options or total text in these options, similar to a picklist field?


I know on a picklist field, you can have as many options as you want, as long as the total character count for all options doesn't exceed a certain number (255?).  Is the same true for the Task Subject field?




I am pretty sure it is the same for all standard picklists. Which I do beleive is 300?




Can anyone confirm this?  It's not described as a picklist like the other standard fields.  I believe it was called a combobox.


I just created ten 100 character Status options, followed by another ten 255 character Status options w/o hitting any sort of limit.  However, each option can not exceed 255 characters.


Here are the limits for picklists:


I just tried to overload the Status picklist with more than 15,000 characters and I wasn't stopped at 15,000.  Seems like an exception.
