This is a follow up from case 01345120.


We have a business requirement to increase the length of the user id field to 256 characters. Siteminder currently accepts only 255 characters. 


As per Siteminder dev "Size is 256 ( so its 255 + terminated 0 ) #define SM_SIZE_USERNAME 256" due to which it can only accept 255 characters. 


Could the "SM_SIZE_USERNAME" fields size be increased so that it can accept 256 characters instead of 255?
