Which "strange limit on loadstring"?

I should have make it clearer.  To create a large table with

loadstring(action) -- formerly dostring

4.0.1 works perfectly well but 5.1 gives an error "main function has more than 262143 items in a constructor".  I track it down to something with
MAXINT or MAXARG_Bx.  But I thought the only limit is the stack (from the manual or Roberto's book, can't remember).  The stack is OK I'm sure.
