how are you doing the validation? custom method added to the validator-rules.xml? what happens when 'validation fails' at 1600 chars? exception thrown? nothing works? 1600 chars allowed to be submitted?
you can also use script...NOT to do validation, but to prevent the user from enter more than 250 characters (onkeydown do a count of the number of characters and delete the last char enter if it's char #251). you can also add a message saying that anything above 250 chars will be truncated.
