Field "location" in table "locales_source" is too short. The patch makes
it limitless.

There is a similar location-row in the watchdog table.

The MySQL database scheme also uses varchar(128) so it is not specific
to PostgreSQL.

I wouldn't recommend making it limitless.  Maybe 255 is more sensible?

Hmm... maybe you're right. I came accross a polish language pack which
had 177 characters in that field, it could easily have more, but I
think 256 will be good for now.

The field in watchdog is not revelant to this bug as it handles the
filename of event occured and can contain only one location, unlike
many as here.

The new patch attached and bug details changed.

Committed to HEAD and DRUPAL-4-6.  Thanks patryk.

The field was changed to 256 by this patch.  Not sure about pgsql, but
the max for a CHAR/VARCHAR in mysql is 255.  Patch attached.

Note:  Shouldn't there also be a update in updates.inc for this since
it is a schema change?
