      Description

      The database field

      {prefix}

      course_request.shortname is defined as char(15). The fieldsize for shortname in course/request_form.php is set to 100 characters.
      The problem comes with the modifications of the shortname lenght in the form due to the MDL-9804 but not in the database.

      To solve the problem we have to change de field in the database to get the same lenght as in the course.shotname (char(100)) or undo the changes in the course/request_form.php ( Revision 1.10 Branch: MAIN)

          There is another bug out there about changing the database field: MDL-13746 - You may have just fixed, or half-fixed that Petr.
