it seems that grails domain changes, i.e. changing the length of a field in a table, are not getting picked up when the application is re-run.  Attached is code for the domain.  The configuration is set to create-drop each time, so I would expect to see the changes.

Ok. I will not select this as the answer until someone has confirmed it's ok as the answer...

The configuration/DataSource.groovy was set to "create-drop" for development, but to "update" for test.  When I was making changes, I was running integration tests.  "Update" seems to only pick up changes, such as new fields, but it does not pick up changes to lengths in fields or constraints.  I modified the DataSource.groovy to set up the test source to "create-drop" as well and all issues were resolved.

I was asked to accept this as teh solution.
I'm sure there is a better solution though.
I have not had time to get back to studying groovy/grails so i don't have a better answer at the moment.
