I have run into the strangest "bug" with EE. I was running 2.5.2 and kept having any text input fields default to 12 characters instead of the normal 128. So I bit the bullet and upgraded to 2.5.5, hoping that would solve the problem. No luck. I just created a new text field, set the default character limit to 128, saved it and when I went back in it had gone back to 12 characters.
Is there a solution for this?
