Fields are glommed to medium text columns even when the sys_dictionary max length is less than 256 characters. This also results in creating a multiline text field on the form.
Steps to Reproduce
This issue only intermittently occurs when a field with medium text is changed to map max length of less than 40 characters. Randomly, when a field with less than 256 characters is created, it is glommed to a medium text field in the database. This results in creating a multiline text field on the form.
This issue is fixed in London. Please upgrade to a fixed version.
