This is sort of a followup to my question about the base64 decode routines

I found the problem is when I use %len(%trimr(field)) and field size is
char > 65535 this will always return 65535 instead of the actual length (in
this case it's about 125k).

I can't find anything in the docs about this.

I'm sure I'm missing something... ideas? In this case I defined the field
as char(500000) for a test.

I tried setting it as varying and still the same result when using %len().
Always get 65535.
