The maximum value is 10,000. However, since your slider is probably less
than 10,000 pixels wide, the approach taken seems to have been to use
1,000 as the maximum settable within the slider, but to let you continue
dragging (or edit the number, or use the tiny increment button).

Yes, you can't do that this way.

I admit I usually use editable brushes, which are limited to square,
diamond, circle, triangle, etc., and I have keys bound to
increment-by-10, increment-by-1, and the same for decrement.

I think wanting integer-only brush sizes would be an enhancement
request, although I'm not sure I understand the motivation: scaling by a
non-integral amount sometimes gives better results. But maybe integral
brush sizes is just a thing I happen never to have wanted :)

I think this is a feature and not a bug.

No need to apologise, but you might want to revisit the bug description
and revise it if appropriate (I didn't check).
