Hi Mark

First thing Id check is in systempreferences because Koha allows up  
to 16 chars in the database.
Check the members/patron tab in systempreferences make sure no  
checkdigit routine is turned on. If its set to none, then let me know  
and ill have a look at the code.

You installed version 2.2.8 right?
