There is a bug in ZFS send/receive that was already fixed in OpenSolaris snv_111

Opensolaris Bug ID: 6801979

This may happen during ZFS send/receive (managed to reproduce it):
internal error: Argument list too long
Abort (core dumped)
warning: cannot send 'pool/home at s2': Broken pipe	
This bug was fixed in snv_111, right after the dirtying snapshot problem:

Issues Resolved:
BUG/RFE:6801979 zfs recv can fail with E2BIG
Files Changed: (revision 8986:45c289aff7c9)

Should be easy to implement.
