MOSS Profile Properties

We encountered an issue recently on a MOSS server that was throwing errors in event viewer consistently on a regular schedule (error 5000 and 5553). We learned the hard way that MOSS internal profile names cannot be more than 32 characters long. The issue is not well documented, the error does not tell you this, and worse yet the edit profile screen allows you to type in as many characters as you want without limiting or warning you about 32 character limit.

Hopefully this helps others out there doing MOSS implementations -- don't have internal profile property names longer than 32 characters.
