If `rgrep' and friends don't allow whitespaces in filenames and hit the
command line limit much earlier than your version, I'd consider it a bug
that should be reported using M-x report-emacs-bug.  But since `rgrep'
uses `find' (or, on Windows, the find emulation of dired) in conjunction
with -print0, it shouldn't suffer problems with filenames with spaces or
maximum length of command lines...

On my Gentoo/GNU Linux box, it is...

% getconf ARG_MAX
