Are you sure about that?
I don't think libterminfo imposes any length on $TERMCAP other than those translating to terminfo.

Not ruling out any errors with the conversion though.

You can verify $TERMCAP using infocmp.

$ echo $TERMCAP
dw|vt52|DEC vt52: :cr=^M:do=^J:nl=^J:bl=^G: :le=^H:bs:cd=\EJ:ce=\EK:cl=\EH\EJ: :cm=\EY%+ %+ :co#80:li#24: :nd=\EC:ta=^I:pt:sr=\EI:up=\EA: :ku=\EA:kd=\EB:kr=\EC:kl=\ED:kb=^H:
$ infocmp dw
# Reconstructed from $TERMCAP
dw|vt52|DEC vt52,
        cols#80, lines#24,
        bel=^G, clear=\EH\EJ, cr=^M, cub1=^H, cud1=^J, cuf1=\EC,
        cup=\EY%p1%{32}%+%c%p2%{32}%+%c, cuu1=\EA, ed=\EJ, el=\EK, ht=^I,
        ind=^J, kbs=^H, kcub1=\ED, kcud1=\EB, kcuf1=\EC, kcuu1=\EA, nel=^M^J,

Why don't you post your $TERMCAP and infocmp output here?
