Description

If one creates an alias with a name over 32 characters, it will cause table name problems when trying to use the alias (2.0RC1, updated a couple days ago).

It would be nice to catch this error. In the short term, modifying the hint text:

The name of the alias may only consist of the characters "a-z, A-Z and 0-9".

to:

The name of the alias may be 32 or fewer characters and only consist of "a-z, A-Z, 0-9 and _".

would help most people avoid the problem.

(killing two birds with that stone).

Looks good in 2.0-RC2 (amd64) built on Tue May 31 12:13:03 EDT 2011.

Trying to save an alias with name longer than 31(!) characters results in an appropriate error message.
