Since i installed the EBF i'm having issues with some icons not showing up in my application. All the icons are stored as long binary. On loading the application, a random amount of icons dont show up. I checked, they're stored correctly. What i found out is that every broken icon is 65535 bytes big on reading with entity framework. Strangely that's the UInt16 max value. So i believe they somehow get truncated.

Is that a known bug, and if so, what is the solution?

Yes, this is a known bug - see: CR #742857 and CR #743127. This fixes the cases for both LONG VARCHAR and LONG BINARY, in build

which is not yet available on Windows, right? (AFAIK, has just been released.)

Correct, the EBF is not yet available but it has been requested.

Clicking on the link for CR #743127 brings me to an empty bug report page. Is that the right number?

I'd suspect expect the public CR definition is not yet available - in my experience, it sometimes takes a while until a specified CR is filled with meaningful contents for us (i.e. the public). The internal description will have been filled right from the start...

The details for CR #742857 are the same details as #743127, except 'LONG BINARY' instead of 'LONG VARCHAR' in the description.

I will inquire about the visibility of CR #743127.
