The default value for maxWidth and maxHeight is the topmost limit of the 
allowable stack size. So if you click the up arrow, you're going to go 
off into the weeds; the size will be an abstraction. The fix would be to 
script the inspector not to accept larger values than the maximum. You 
could report that in the Quality Control Center if you feel like it.

If you are trying to set the maxWidth higher than the default, then 
that's out of range too.
