Bug#188043: cdebconf-udeb: Unable to handle long multiselect lists

I added a test script in cdebconf/src/test/ to demonstrate the bug
(longselect.*), and used this to try to find the problem.  The
following patch fixed the problem for the test script, but I belive it
is better to rewrite the code to not depend on a hardcoded max limit.
