Limit on layerDefinitions Length?

I am trying to apply a layer definition to a layer.  It works fine, universally, until the SQL string gets too long.  I don't know the exact character breaking point, but the length of the string is the only thing causing it to fail.

Is there some length limit on this string for some reason?  Is this proxy related? (To my knowledge, the proxy page is set up properly).

The behavior I'm seeing when the string gets too long is that the layer does not update its features; it simply displays whatever it had been displaying prior.

Thanks for any help/ideas on this,
