You are correct that IBO currently reads MaxLength directly from
SQLLen for text fields. I do think that an override for this would be
nice to have.

You may be interested in trying TIB_EditEnh, the enhanced mask mode
will allow you to restrict the length without the problems associated
with standard masks.
