This is probably browser HTML understanding or PHP issue and surely have
nothing to do with SSL.

To find out, what is going on, add such PHP in top of your code:

<?php

print("<pre>");
print_r($_REQUEST);
print("</pre>");

?>

After submit you will see, what PHP got from form. I am not HTML guru,
but there were values for input and textarea tags affecting their
maximum allowable size named something like "size" and "maxlength". I is
possible that browser uses some default is they are not defined.
