Short Description
Inconsistency in the way that psql handles long names
 
Long Description
PostgreSQL version 7.1.3
OS: RedHat Linux 6.2
 
I compiled this version of postgresql from source, with the NAMEDATALEN 
variable set to 512. All works ok, apart from when I use
the psql interactive terminal, and type:
 
\d City_setregions_bds_regions_ass_rel
 
at the command line, where City_setregions_bds_regions_ass_rel is the 
name of a table that exploits the longer names. The terminal reports:
 
Did not find any relation named "city_setregions_bds_regions_ass_".
 
It therefore looks like the \d command is not picking up the longer 
NAMEDATALEN at compile time.
