I thought I had found a bug in the code, so I recoded a quickie
to make sure that I call ct_describe() and don't do anything with
the returned maxlength. However I still get the same results, and
the pattern I see is that maxlength is really
so column 'one' has a maxlength of 5, column 'three' has a maxlength
of 7, and column 'six' has a maxlength of 7.
Seems I can't do a whole lot about it right now - although I may
take a couple of minutes to check the docs...
