That is on purpose.  From the commit log:

    Building with ./configure --enable-large-secmem will make gpg
    capable of working with those secret keys, as well as permitting the
    use of a new gpg option --enable-large-rsa, which let gpg generate RSA
    keys up to 8Kib when used with --batch --gen-key.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
