iLife 05 has major flaw for Podcasters

I recently purchased Apple's new iLife '05 software for another project and decided to use the new version of GarageBand on my Mac to create my podcast. Suddenly I found that it has a major flaw that limits its usability for podcasting. Make that (in my opinion) MAJOR FLAW! It is documented on Apple's knowledge base. Other podcasters have also ran into this roadblock, it is a 999 measure limit that limits a song to about 30 minutes, maybe an hour with some hacking of the tempo settings. GarageBand is an application that is known as a podcasting tool. Why limit the tool this way? I think updates should be improved, not hobbled.
