Target VersionFixed in Version2.00+ 
Summary07095: Syntax error or access violation: 1118 Row size too large
DescriptionWhen filling out after activation with tokens, the following error is shown:

Error executing query in dbExecuteAssoc:CDbCommand failed to execute the SQL statement: SQLSTATE[42000]: Syntax error or access violation: 1118 Row size too large. The maximum row size for the used table type, not counting BLOBs, is 8126. You have to change some columns to TEXT or BLOBs. The SQL statement executed was: UPDATE lime_survey_438528 SET `lastpage`=6

I cannot reproduce this error on another limesurvey installation at another server, so i'm not sure if it is an bug or it's a problem of the server setting.

Steps To Reproduce--> activate survey
--> filling out the forms

i found out whats the specfic problem: in the mysql database table of the type 'InnoDB' were created instead of the required 'MyIsam'.

LS was creating InnoDB-tables instead of 'MyIsam' when activating a survey.

My provider told that LS isn't forcing the DB to create 'MyIsam'-tables. If it's true, it would be helpful, if LS would force the database to do this...
