Configurations:

A: PostgreSQL 7.2.2 on a RedHat Linux 6.2
B: Windows PostgreSQL 8.0.0 RC2

(A) truncates table names with length >32 characters 
to 32 characters.

I have some legacy application which relies on this fact.
This code uses 32+ chars for creating the schema but
uses 32- chars for querying. This works fine with 7.2.2.

However, it doesn't work with (B) which expects complete
names. 

My application needs to work with both the databases.

Is there any way by which I can impose the 32 char limit
on the 8.0 database?

In which PGSQL release did the table name length limitation change? 

Thanks,
Sankar
