I find that new mhttpd has strange behaviour for ODB strings.
- I create a new STRING variable in ODB through mhttpd. It defaults to size 32.
- I then edit the STRING variable through mhttpd, writing a new string larger
than 32 characters.
- Initially everything looks fine; it seems as if the new string value has been
- But if you reload the page, or navigate back to the page, you realize that
mhttpd has silently truncated the string back to 32 characters.
You can reproduce this problem on a test page here:
Older versions of mhttpd (I'm testing one from 2 years ago) don't have this
'feature'. For older mhttpd the string variable would get resized when a larger
string was inputted. That definitely seems like the right behavior to me.
I am using fresh copy of midas from bitbucket as of this morning. (How do I get
a particular tag/hash of the version of midas that I am using?)
