I apologize for the ambiguous statement. I meant 64K characters per line and 32K pixels per line. And Richard suggested that the 32K pixel limit is OS X only.
In some of my test stacks I type in some test data into a field or click a button that fills it with some number of characters. These often get up to 33MB, so I confirm your observation of no limit to the amount of text a field can hold.
