[repost because of typo in Ingo's email address]

The event_type record has a max length for the event name.
It's called MAX_EVENT_NAME.
    
The name may be truncated to fit the max length. But the
header.size still reflects the original name length. If
that length is > MAX_EVENT_NAME, then the header.size
field is bogus. Fix this by using the length of the name
after the potential truncation.
