Number of ports to specify via -sP limited to 10

Sorry if this is a repost. When performing host detection scan of strongly
filtered (read: DROP, not DENY) subnets it is a viable option to perform a
"-sP -PS" instead of a "-p0-" to identify hosts. If you do not know what
systems you are exactly looking for you have to specify several
"port/service signatures" like 21; 22; 23; 80,443,8080; 135-139;
1433,1521,1527; 256,257,... and so on.
Unfortunately, when specifying more than 10 ports separated by "," as it is
supposed to be nmap goes

"Bogus argument to -PS: Buffer would overflow -- too many numbers in
provided lis

Same goes for -PA. Is there any workaroung to submit >10 port values for
host detection scans?
(sry again if this one was already discussed before)
