Confirmed, and in fact the append lines in /var/lib/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default are > 255 characters.

However, if I'm not mistaken the 255 character limit only applies to 2.4 and older kernels.

The warning should be silenced, but it shouldn't be hurting anythign.

Hi

After running this command the MAAS web interface still tells me to run the command:
  sudo maas-import-isos

So I assumed that the error meant that the command didn't finish correctly.

I'm running this on an Ubuntu 12.04, so the kernel is a 3.2
