gnats 3.113 on UNIX_SV 4.2MP 2.1.3.
Note: Gnatsweb and gnats run on the same machine.
A text field paragraph containing more that 512 characters will disappear when the submit-edit is pressed in gnatsweb.
A paragraph of 512 or greater will survive when the PR is created; but when the PR is edited it will disappear, even if the text field with the long paragraph is not changed.
When text is added to a paragraph that is originally shorter than 512, the whole paragraph disappears if the resultant size is 512 or greater.
This happens in Description, How-To Fields, and Fix fields.
(This is similar to the recently closed PR27, but slightly different.)
1. Create a PR with a description of more than 512 characters without any carrage returns.
2. Edit the Pr, but don't change the original description.
3. View the PR - the description is gone!
