As a general comment, there should be no difference between the API
from C and the API from Perl.  Of course, occasionally we introduce
Perl-specific bugs in the bindings, but these are rarer than you would
think (the Perl bindings are automatically generated, so any bugs
would be systematic, affecting many different calls at once).

In this case the export name is getting truncated ...

With the direct backend, the following code is responsible for
constructing the -drive parameter:


There seems to be something pretty strange going on with the
u.exportname field.  I can't quite understand it at the moment, but it
is certainly a bug.
