There should certainly be no limit like that. I generated a 100+ long
series of linked frames at one point (using Python). Admittedly, the app
was almost unusuably slow, but it worked.

Is it possible that there's already text content in the target frame, or
it's a member of another linked series? I don't think any useful
notification to the user is done when they try to link a frame like
this, it's just ignored (tottles off to to file another
usability bug).

Thanks for the tip. It turned out that frame that wouldn't accept the link had two empty text frames in the same space.
