That's a good one. One of them is 13 characters. I only know that from
messing around with it a couple years ago.

While doing the same earlier this year, nothing reminded that you need
that odd amount. It seems like that occurred in multiple unrelated
places, too, while I was "grasping at straws". :)

If I come across my specific case use again, it's at least wishlist
worthy to have some kind of advisement/reminder, e.g. at least a
cursor hover triggered tip, there in your face when you're first
setting that up..
