[gdal-dev] GDAL /vsistdin/ 1MB limit

I've got a PDF geo-referencing implementation in place which makes use of
the gdal_translate utility. Recently I've been testing out and
implementation to read in the input content from standard input stream using
the /vsistdin/ handler.
According to the documentation for /vsistdin/ handler - "Full seek in the
first MB of a file is possible" and I've encountered the following error(s)
when the content I've attempted to pipe in is greater than 1MB.
ERROR 6: Seek(SEEK_END) unsupported on /vsistdin when stdin > 1 MB
ERROR 6: backward Seek() unsupported on /vsistdin above first MB
Would this be a hard limit of 1MB placed the content size which can be piped
in via /vsistdin/(the source code and the error message suggests it migh me)
or can it be configured? Has anyone encountered this before?
Any suggestions will be appreciated
