#11004 closed Bug (fixed)

cache.set should raise an exception when key is too long

At least when using DB caching, the maximum allowed cache key length is 255 because the cache table is created that way. But when cache.set() is not currently aware of this and when caching a value using a key longer than 255 characters, a database error is thrown (which, at least in the case of Postgres, is not very clear about the reason).

Not sure why my adding myself to the CC list also unset "UI/UX" and "Easy pickings". This bug does seem like pretty easy pickings though....
