It's actually not a web interface issue. NOCOL uses 15 character device
names throughout. Just off the top of my head--you could try changing
MAXNMLEN in nocol.h (in the include directory of the distribution) and
recompile. Then you'd also need to redefine $event_t in nocollib.pl
(probably the a15's should be changed to MAXNMLEN-1).

I haven't tried this so there may be other changes you'd need to make.
