Not sure, but it probably caps at 255.
I made a test on a link battle (again) to check if this is true, and found it isn't. Here's the test:
A Burned Machamp hitting a Ho-Oh with a CH Cross Chop. The damage was about 37%. Then, a Cursed Burned Machamp hitting a Ho-Oh with a CH Cross Chop. The damage was about 25%.
That's certainly not damage weighting because the diference is far too great. And if the theory was true, the Curse Machamp should damaged more.
I used a Burned Machamp because it lost half the attack, but the stat stage remains 0. When you Curse, the stat stage becomes +1, but the real attack is like -1 because of the Burn. In the first case, the stat stage of Machamp's Attack is the same of Ho-Oh's Defense, so Burn is ignored. In the second, the stat stage of Machamp's Attack is greater than Ho-Oh's Defense, so Burn is not ignored.
Here's how it really works:
If the stage stat of the attacking Pokémon (Attack or Special Attack, depending on the move) is lower or equal to the stage stat of the defending Pokémon (Defense or Special Defense, depending on the move), the stage stats are ignored on the damage calculation, as well as Reflect, Light Screen and Burn Status. Otherwise, they're not ignored.
An easier test can be made with Reflect. A +0 Atk Pokémon will do better damage on CH then a +1 Atk, if it hits a Pokémon behind Reflect.
Wow. What weird mechanics.
Also, EW tested the defrost rate.

By reverse cumulating them, here are the curves:
10% really seems to be the defrost rate in GSC, and it matches NB's source (which says 25% for Adv, maybe it needs to be tested?)
Yes, its 10%.
There are two very important things that should be added to the first post, IMO: How to determine the Unown letter, and how the Brightpowder works.
What was the atk of the snorlax you tested with?
