Someone Failed At Boundary Testing

In the World of Warcraft, apparently you can have too much of a good thing:

Today, while skimming over various WoW sites, I noticed two forum posts about the same topic: Players have discovered that there’s a cap on how much money you can carry in the game. Apparently that amount is 214,748 gold, 36 silver, 48 copper. After you reach that lofty sum, you’ll no longer be able to receive money from any source in the game. While some responses to the original posts claim that this exact limit had previously been theorized to exist, there have been no reports of anyone in the game actually achieving this amount via legal means.

I feel for game testers. They really must account for all possible combinations and conditions, because some players have nothing better to do than to try to find all the possible flaws in the system. Like doing really well monetarily.
