Pro*C variable name lengths

Does anyone know where the allowable length of host variable names is documented for Pro*C?  

We've upgraded a database from 8.1.7 to (HP-UX). After recompiling pro*c, developers are stating that programs are not behaving properly unless some variable names are shortened.  

Examples of what they're telling me they had to change:  

original  variable name                                  changed
variable names
char flt_cd_prc_clss_copics[3];                  char
char flt_cd_clss_grp_sls[3];                         char

I'm finding this difficult to believe, but I suppose it's theoretically possible.  

I'd still love to find where (if anywhere) this is documented.
