Maybe the popup menu over the line number could have an item that takes you to
the doc for those vars when `??' is displayed: (emacs) `Optional Mode Line'.
IOW, `??' says only "No idea what the line number is". It could help to also
point users to info on how to control/fix this.
And/or a popup item could just increase the limit to make it big enough to show
the number of the last line number for the current buffer.
