Firmware version 126.96.36.199.
The shutter speed dial design precludes using an exposure longer than 8 seconds in manual exposure mode (though auto exposure goes to 60 seconds with the M240).
In addition, there is a hard limit of 60 seconds for exposure at ISO 200 (as of firmware 188.8.131.52), with shorter limits for higher ISO values.
In practice, this means that night exposures are often 1-3 stops underexposed for interesting outdoor conditions, greatly increasing the noise. Yet well exposed 60 second images show no sign of this being a sensor quality limit.
