Issue #156 resolved

Shorten default `fallback_application_name` to avoid truncated identifier warning

Via the discussion group:

I've tried to up the pg gem on a pretty average Rails app to 0.15.0 and once done, I get messages such as this one whenever a rake task is executed:

NOTICE: identifier "/var/www/" will be truncated to "/var/www/"

Most likely, this is not an issue of the pg gem, I guess notices have been suppressed on previous versions of it.

However, I don't have a clue as of where to look for the source of this problem. The message means that a statement contains "/var/www/" which is interpreted as an attribute (column). And since attributes can be only 64 chars max, it will be truncated.

    I'd also like to see this addressed.

    For those of you using Rails, you can quiet this down by adding the following to the VERY top of config/application.rb:

    ENV['PGAPPNAME'] = 'rails'
