I have a table with a field set to character varying (255).  When an insert
is executed with a value for this field greater than 255 characters, an
error is generated rather than the input being truncated as stated in the
postgresql docs.

  Postgresql version 7.3.2.

  This problem did not occur in postgresql version 6.5 and the values were
truncated.


Output from \d of the filed in question below....
