How many tasks can be started?

can you tell me how many Tasks can be started from L4? As the task id
has 11 bit, the theoretical maximum seems to be 2048, but if I configure
simple_ts to use 246 tasks, I can't create a new task without using
simple_ts (I use rmgr_get_task and rmgr_task_new). In this case the
first free task number is 256. The task creation via rmgr_task_new seems
to work (a valid task id is returned), but it seems that I can't serve
the first page fault. If I serve it with an fpage, I immediately get the
same page fault again and again. With simple_ts configured to 245 tasks
everything works fine.
