I've been searching a little bit in the source code for the GDK warning:
"Native Windows wider or taller than 65535 pixels are not supported".
It appears (in gdkwindow-x11.c and gdkgeometry-x11.c) that, in case
width or height is > 65535, then it's set to 65535. But (if I'm right),
as supported width / height go down to 32767 for X, the app get a GDK
error and crashes anyways. Maybe setting the width / height limit to
32767 in GDK could fix that.

BTW, have you file a bug for the issue? It's the best way to have it fixed.
