On a second thought, here is a patch against both DBs. Both are
untested, but the change is tiny.

The Postgresql database script shipped with Drupal 4.5.2 has a 32
characters long varchar value for role name. The relevant UI form
field, however, has attribute maxlength="64". This naturally causes an
SQL error, if too long name is entered.

The SQL part is still same in CVS version, but I don't know if the UI
part has been fixed.

Related SQL:

  rid SERIAL,
  name varchar(32) NOT NULL default '',
  PRIMARY KEY  (rid),
  UNIQUE (name)

Changing version to 4.6.1, and component to database system (perhaps
more relevant than user system), as the problem still exists. It also
seems that the length of the field in question is only 32 in both
database.mysql and database.pgsql, even though the UI allows 64.

Either UI or the database scripts should be fixed.
