Problem Description: When setting the client variable purge time to more than 596 hours, the server interprets that as zero hours. Nothing in the user interface indicates that there is a maximum value for the Client Variable Purge Interval hour field, nor that I had overrun it. A related error is given to the console: "Warning [http-bio-80-exec-3] - Using default Client Variable Purge Interval of 1 hour 7 minutes, interval supplied is too short: 7 minutes."

Steps to Reproduce: 
- Log in to ColdFusion Administrator
- Click to Client Variables
- Change Purge Interval "hours" field to 999

Actual Result:
Purge interval is executed on the default schedule - 1 hour, 7 minutes.

Expected Result:
Purge interval should be executed every 999 hours, 7 minutes, or the screen should return an error explaining the maximum.

Any Workarounds:
Set the purge interval hour to less than 597 hours.

Nathan, I want to understand why do you want to set purge interval to 597 hours, which is more than 24 days. Please let us know what should be the upper limit for purge interval according to your use case.

Thank you for your clarifying question. I disable client variables on all of my servers. I expect that client variable purging will be disabled when client variables are disabled. Instead, client variables still purge even when client variables are disabled.

Nathan, How did you disable the client variables?

I suppose it wasn't disabling so much as setting "None" as the default storage mechanism. How about this: can I disable client variables? They're awful.

Nathan, There is no way to disable to the default purge scheduler as of now. But It will not purge anything or deteriorate the performance if you are not using client variables in your application. Can you please tell the problem which you are facing because this purge scheduler?

It clutters up my log file. I'm just reporting a bug with the timer and lack of messaging.

Not able to repro. I am able to save long values without any error.I have checked it in main as well as hotfix branch. Can you check in latest dev build if you can repro
