Column names are at max 128 character long.
To be precise to catch this problem you have to:
- use long names (> 85 characters)
- use multibyte character sets (like utf8)
- use many not-ascii characters
If all conditions are meet this problem raise.
I'll write a workaround to limit column at 255 bytes.
