Short description of error

The mesh subdivide's 'Number of Cuts' can be set to 'extreme' values like 10,000. This will crash blender and my computer when subdividing a cube. I didn't test higher values but I imagine it's possible to set number of cuts to something higher.

Reported because of this question on blender.stackexchange which had a similar problem with 'extreme' values (see comments on answer):

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. On default cube enter edit mode and press 'W'> Subdivide.
  1. In toolbar set 'Number of cuts' to 10,000 or higher value.
