Oh I actually forgot to mention this. What I've been testing isn't just the 
creation of the database alone but also some basic CRUD operations. It is when I 
try to create a table that I get an exception if I have more than 3 Latin 
characters. The exception the server sees is essentially the same you observed 
on DERBY-4799.

+1 to the suggested approach.

For the record, I'm able to create databases with a lot more than three
Latin characters, also more than 127, on in my environment, so
I think there are things that used to work that will stop working until
the limit is increased. But as I said above, I'm +1 to the suggested
