I don't understand what you mean here, 255 is the default. If you have 143 
real tiles, the limit of 255 is probable not reached, means, all phases are
with one read pass.
A higher max-areas value is only needed if more than 255 tiles are
I found out that the problem-generator-phase doesn't report how many 
areas it processes in one pass, so you have to calculate on your own:
if the number of areas (including the pseudo-areas) is e.g. 1000 and you run
with max-areas=255, splitter will use 4 read passes, each processing 250
