Are you talking: 
 * "SIZE" of the input slot for characters visible which is currently
set in HTML at 30.
 * "MAXLENGTH" of the input variable which is not set in HTML.
 * Browser maximum filename length.
 * Local OS pathname max-length that you browser is running on.
 * Maximum length set by a handler script for filename length.
 * Maximum acceptable filename size by the server, which is an OS
dependant issue (though the server should create temporary filenames
anyway).

and why would you want huge filenames anyway?
