For simple data-arrays, vectors I do not have this strict limitation.
But there is a limitation for some containers like maps and sets (2000 for VS2010 SP1):
VS2010 Debugger seems to limit std::map to 100 http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vsdebug/thread/3cccdb9c-ae08-4723-b9ee-8e23a7a888c5/
Once I did set limit to 15000 on Vista32 through registry as suggested by this thread, but do not know it will work for bigger numbers.
Warning: Modifying registry incorrectly may cause very serious problems on your pc.
