How do I fix user role problems in SAP security?

Having too many roles in SAP security can indicate that something is wrong with your security infrastructure.

When I use SU01 to add a bunch of roles to user ID XX, a pop-up window appears and warns the maximum number of profiles has been exceeded for user XX. What can I do now?
A user's profiles (i.e., the objects generated by the profile generator) are all stored in one long field in table USR04. Once that field is filled up a user can have no more roles.

I have never seen your problem before. It seems that you are working with a poor security design that should require so many roles. Ideally users shouldn't need more than three or four roles.
