Update database scheme still fails
If you try to update a current 6.1 introduction package without any other core update the database scheme updater fails and blocks other updates.

To be more clear according to the identifier key issue:
in a current 6.1 installation of the introduction package the field length of identifier is 200. Within the update of the key "identifier" the length is set to 200 chars as well. This used to be okay, as within some 6.1 update the table field was raised to a length of 512 chars. Then the database index gets correctly cropped to 200 chars.
But coming from an elder not uptodate 6.1 installation the key is only set to the field without any cropping. This causes a problem for the field update to 512 chars as the index becomes to big. To solve this issue manual handling in the compare database wizard or even the database itself is needed.
