PATCH: Long paragraphs are lost during PR edits

Gnats 3.113 has a nasty bug where, when you edit a PR containing text paragraphs of more than 512 characters, these paragraphs are discarded by gnatsd. They simply vanish from the PR.

This is caused by the #define MAXLINE 512 in gnats/query.h

I have increased this to 16384 (16kB), and the problem disappeared. The following patch against the tip of the v3 branch does this:
