that some of my state names were too similar and too long (differ only in the last character),
and that this was resulting in my state machine taking an unexpected transition.  Does anyone
know what the actual limit is on the length of state names, because there clearly seems to
be one.  I fixed my problem in a test case by shortening some of the names of the similarly
named states, and the issue went away.  I now need to find all of the cases that my state
names are too long.

Threre isn't any restriction on the length of the event name, but the
names are expected to imply an ontology. There is also some limited
wildcard behavior so specifying event="foo.*" will match,
foo.baz, and so on.

If you provide some details (actual event names in your case, or even
better, a complete test document) we should be able to tell if the
above applies.
