reporting tool -- filter limitations

I wanted to add some more filters to one of my reports under the reporting tool feature.  On a forecast report I have an "object name" filter to specify objects to exclude.  But the ones I add to the end of the filter list (separated by commas) are being ignored, and the ones at the front of the filter list are working!  (I've flipped them around to be sure of this.)

So obviously there is a limit here.  Does anyone know what the limit is?  My hunch is that it stops looking at my filter list at about 120 characters.  I'm finding this to be very annoying since I have some long object names, and I'm only successfully filtering about 4 or 5 object names.

I'm running the v11.2.0 reporting tool utility;
