Extend size of "General Properties" Description field

If I attempt to enter more than 100 characters in this field, the message is displayed:
"Description can not be greater than 100 characters."

However, this field on the Database (eam_platform.DESCRIPTION) is actually a VARCHAR(256) and if I insert more than 100 characters in this field using SQL it is displayed correctly through the HYPERIC HQ interface.

I have not been able to locate where this 100 char limit is configured (or if there is a good reason why I should not put that many characters in it). If the limit cannot be changed, would it be possible to add a second Extended Description field?

Thank you

The limit is hard-coded in the file
./hyperic/server-4.1.2/hq-engine/server/default/deploy/hq.ear/hq.war/WEB-INF/validation/validation.xml
