Why does IE cache using "Corporate" GPO template max out at 32megs?

On a Windows 2003  terminal server (as well as my domain GPO) I would like to set my building's IE cache to about 200 megs per XP PC.

Should be easy in a GPO by going to GPEDIT.MSC- "User Configuration/Windows Settings/Internet Explorer Maintenance/Advanced/Corporate Settings"  or setting this though a GPO, right?

But I find that no matter what IE cache settings I put in it maxes out at 32megs. It does this on both the local Group Policy editor as well as the one for the domain. Any idea why Microsoft has limited it to 32 megs?

I don't find that option at all in any of the policies I have here.

Was a custom Template added into your policy?

Below Internet Explorer Maintenance there is no Advanced subheading using normal templates (at least that I can see on my XP Pro, SBS 2003 or 2003 Standard servers.).

If you right-click on Internet ExplorerMaintenance and select "Preference Mode" it expands the option list and you will find the Corporate Settings template there.

Weird.

I agree. I'm not sure why Microsoft provided the ability to change it through GPO, and then limited it to 32megs. I kinda wonder if this as an oversight since this is a "hidden" feature.
