Default Truncated field and missing provenances

I am having two problems with Tantalus. The first has been going on for a long time.

This is that many of the data field (Mint Date, grade, seller, venue and others) are truncating the entry to a number of places that is way too small for the needs of what we use these fields for. for example a mint date of "123 - 129 CE" will display as "123 - 12" and a Venue listing of "Electronic Auction" will only display as "Electronic A." sometimes there is an easy work around that will fix this. Other times not.

The second problem just happened today. Please see coin 42129 This coin has provenance that uses all four provenance fields. However, after editing the coin, Provenance 3 and 4 did not list. When I went back to re-edit it, the Provenance 4 field is not even showing on the update screen.

Please let me know what is going on.
