I still feel certain I've done stuff like:

find <dir> -type f | xargs zgrep -i blah

and seen something like "too many arguments" or whatever it is, but of
course I can't reproduce that now.

Check the "bugs" section of the man page, when it talks about

somecommand | xargs -s 50000 echo | xargs -I '{}' -s 100000 rm '{}'

it may be related to what you mention.
