When I change the field length of the result is multiplied by 4 each time.
For example, when I enter a length equal to 100, it creates a field with a length of 400.
For information: Locale ru-RU
Creates a field of wrong length
I would like to create a database field desired length

Base - Firebird
Opened a Firebird-Database with LO 220.127.116.11 on OpenSUSE 64bit rpm Linux, German GUI-language.
Created a new table with an Integer and a Varchar-field. Varchar had length while creating the table.
Saved the table, closed the table, closed LO.
Then reopened the database, reopened the table for editing, ot for putting values in rows.
Length of Varchar-field is 100 as expected.
So I couldn't confirm this bug.
Might be a special effect while fixing bug 105142
Version for Firebird I found a lot of problems.
I think it had something to do with an attempt to recalculate the lengths for the locales which are saved in UTF8, two bytes (in the previous version that I such attempts have not seen).
But if you try on the versions in Latin locale, you are unlikely to be able to confirm at least one.
Will have to wait for the opinions of Chinese users . :(
Anyway. Thank you for your work.
Possibly linked to this bug :
As Robert has mentioned, it could also be a side effect of
where these lines were added :
+ const char sCharset = "UTF8";
+ *dpb++ = isc_dpb_set_db_charset;
+ int nCharsetLength = sizeof(sCharset) - 1;
+ *dpb++ = (char) nCharsetLength;
+ strcpy(dpb, sCharset);
+ dpb+= nCharsetLength;
From comment 3, this would be a regression for users of such locales.
