table field information returning wrong length in 5.5.16

I have an application where I use the table field sizes to set widths in a gtk form.

After doing updating my system to opensuse 12.1 the forms no longer had the correct sizes. MySQL had been updated to V14.14 Distrib 5.5.16 x86_64. I do not know what it had been previously.

The code which was failing had the following:

info = dbh.list_fields
info.fetch_fields.each do |fields|
field_info = field.hash

For example a field with the type varchar(40) field_info['length'] had the value 120. I had another system where I had also updated opensuse but I had installed
V14.14 Distrib 5.5.19 x86_64. As a result I removed mysql and installed the later
version and the problem went away.

5.5.16 is the version available from the suse repository. To get 5.5.19 I had to go to your web site.
