Description

The subject says it all - tic issues useless warnings when resulting filename is longer than 16 chars, but doesn't actually truncate it as the warning says:

[...]
tic: Warning: near line 25101: terminal 'screen-bce.gnome|screen optimized for GNOME-Terminal', 's/screen-bce.gnome' filename too long, truncating to 's/screen-bce.gno'
[...]
$ ls -l ~/ws/termdefs/proto/root_i386/usr/share/lib/terminfo/s/screen-bce.gnome

History

Just to clarify - actual "limit" is 14 characters + [a-z]/, making it 16, which the checks in the code use.

Wouldn't be too surprised if it was expecting s5fs to do the truncation.
