Corba exceptions any String length limits?

I am in the early feasability phase of looking at use cases for
a Corba client written in Java which will need to occasionally
catch exceptions generated by the server implementation which
may contain quite verbose summaries of the failure which occurred
(basically a report). One way of tackling this might be to have
the client set a state which requires it to perform a followup
operation which retrieves a file containing the detailed error

However, are there any length restrictions typically for the
size of exception Strings returned when a Corba (Java idl invoked)
operation throws or raises and exception? I am guessing that the
exception String instance and contents are serialized and sent
across the wire using RMI-IIOP and there wouldn't be any
Corba transport specific limits to the size of the exception
string sent back to the client.

Sorry if this sounds naive.
