_transient_rewrite_rules can get too long causing MySQL error

On large sites, particularly with the permalink set to /%postname%/ _transient_rewrite_rules can get too long, causing the "MySQL server has gone away" error message.

`WordPress database error: [MySQL server has gone away]
INSERT INTO wp_options (option_name,option_value,autoload) VALUES ('_transient_rewrite_rules','a:7526:{s:12:\"robots\\.txt$\";s:18:\"index.php?robots=1\ etc.`

Once this occurs, functionality is severely disrupted until the permalink settings are changed.

I guess the easiest fix might me be to split the data in two, and store it in two rows.

I'm seeing a PHP Access Violation message when using the XML Sitemaps Generator; when using the debug function it provides, the error message is printed at the end of the dump of the '_transient_rewrite_rules' key under WordPress Config.

I have a serious problem related with _transient_rewrite_rules with a blog with 760 pages.
For each new page that we try to publish or update it crash the entire server. No problems with post.

I'll repeat something you probably already read, but it's worth saying that it's a very bad idea to use that kind of permalink structure if you care at all about performance... the option_value column has a max lenght of about 4MB, so even though the field can take a lot of info, you really wouldn't want to go through 4MB of data just to find out what kind of info should be displayed
