500 error creating issue via API -- Description size limit? Edited

Hi,

I'm running into a 500 error when I try to create an issue with a 1K description size.  

If I shrink down the size of the description the call works fine.

Is there a limit to the size of the description field?

Unfortunately all I seem to get back from the JIRA API is 500 - Internal Server Error.

Here's the JSON body of the request I send:
