What's the magic number at which it's truncating?  BTW, look at the 
sql.i file, not sql.c; the .i file is the SWIG input (ugh for people 
like me who disapprove of writing database adapters based on SWIG).

I can see som SQLGetString stuff which would seem to truncate at 128 chars.

In sqlutil.i I can see some stuff that would seem to map an "ignore" 
type of some kind to 256 characters; but I'm not a  SWIG whiz so I am 
not sure that's significant.
