This is by design. I actually believe the field is 64 bytes large.

Should not the html input field have a maxlength="64" attribute then?
It may be by design but the error message does not assist the user in determining where the problem lies.
If you add that to the input field you cant add more characters in there and there would be no error message.
But it might not work so good if multi char UTF-8 character is used
Max length has been added in our development environment.
