No unlimited that I can see (was there ever?), but you can certainly
make it bigger, either with
cmdtool -M some_large_number # default is 100000 bytes
or by adding to your .Xdefaults:
I'd keep in mind space in /tmp and/or swap before going nuts
with the large number, but a couple million might not be out of
Both the .Xdefaults entry and the command line option are mentioned
in the cmdtool man page.
