#13842 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

The user_login column in $wpdb->users is defined as a variable character field of up to 60 characters. The text input field in wp-signup referencing the same column has a maxlength attribute set to 50. Values should match.

Patch to specify user_login maxlength as 60, not 50.
