    initial v1  
    1010 
    1111I have been testing BaseFormSet in various permutations and with various sets of forged POST data, and I haven't been able to get the formset to limit the number of created objects to the defined max_num or the default max_num.  absolute_max does seem to affect the number of forms rendered on the page, but it doesn't seem to affect the number of objects returned from the formset.cleaned_data property even if the POST data is forged to contain a very large number. 
     12 
     13(Edit: I talked to carljm in person here at pycon and discovered that the absolute_max limit of 1000 is actually working, but only in that it throws an IndexError.  I had observed that earlier but thought the IndexError was due to something else.  Ideally the 500 error result would be improved upon in any patch for this issue.)
