 VB3 / Access 2.0 problem with data lengths

Help! I'm supporting / upgrading a VB3 app that writes data to an Access
2.0 .mdb file. Every entry is length-checked and limited to exactly the
.mdb field size limits, but I have 2 customers reporting that they're
receiving a "Couldn't Insert or Paste: Data too long for field" error
message (coming from Access). They get this even when typing 2
characters into a field able to hold between 30 and 200 characters! (I
created a 300-character string and pasted it into EVERY field in the
entry form and couldn't recreate the error; every field truncated
exactly as it should.)

This code works fine on hundreds of machines, but on one W3.1 and one
W95 machine it's causing this error. All files are latest-model
(MSAJTxxx.dll, VBDB300.dll, etc.) Short of flying to Argentina to
install the VB IDE and run it in design mode, what can I do? Is there a
known bug that I haven't been able to find yet?

Thanks in advance for any help!
