MySQL table names can be up to 64 characters, and Postgres up to 63. The base_table column in views_view is only 32 characters. The upshot is that, while one can define base tables with longer names, and default views based on those base tables, attempting to create a table based on such a table fails - when saving the view, you get an error that the table does not exist. The attached patch enlarges the column to accomodate longer table names.
