Symptoms

After Tools upgrade from 8.47 to 8.51, a customized AE (Application Engine) program (LWSPO019) run by the scheduled job (LWSPOEML) runs to success, but shows a message in the AE log:

Error:
Selected column size exceeds 255 characters

It also leaves off a row in AE runcontrol table. This subsequently causes the next run of the job failed.
The same process ran fine under the same conditions on PT 8.47
