When attempting to change the name of a new or existing item in the Master Items form (INVIDITM), the original name is returned to the item upon save.

Profile option: INV: Updateable item name = yes
There are no error messages.


ERROR: The maximum value size for segment <segment> is N.  truncating <item name> to first N bytes of item name

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Navigation: system administrator / profiles / system
2. Set INV: Updateable item name = yes at responsibility or user level.
3. Navigation: Inventory / items / master items / query item and try to change name.
