Currently, the ThinLinc client on Windows uses buffers when interacting with
the registry which are limited to 255 UCS-2 and UTF-8 characters. If the
retrieved value is longer than this, the parameter is silently ignored, and the
client fallbacks to the hardcoded default.
> * The client should correctly handle registry values which are longer than 255 characters
Yes, tested with reading long (255<x<834 characters) HOST_ALIASES from registry
and writing long NFS_EXPORTS to registry. (thinlinc-client-4.9.0post-5897)
> * Non-ASCII characters should still be handled correctly
Looks like they're still read and written okay.
Nitpick: I don't like having "correctly handle" in acceptance criteria, and
this one used it in two out of two.
