Comment (by DJPaul):

 If we're failing to store a long string in a DB column because of a length
 limitation on that column, I don't see any alternatives to increasing the
 size of column (assuming we want the data to remain human-readable and
 easily query-able, and not be compressed somehow).

 We've had this problem before, actually. In BP 1.6, we changed the length
 from 150 up to 255 to avoid truncation; r5966 #4118. :)

 `primary_link` isn't indexed, so it shouldn't be a problem to change the
 column type. Suggest we change this to a `text` so we never run into the
 problem again.
