A while ago I requested the max map size to be raised from 29 to 30 in bug
#14661 and pepeto said this:

 "As far as I know, the maximum number of tiles is (2^15 - 1) because on
places, the code assume the tile index is an signed short integer (e.g. path
finding code).

The size is automatically adjusted on the generator, and usually you don't
get exactly the number of tiles you requested.  So, a margin must be hold."

Maybe that gives a little more insight.
