Trouble with Aeotec sensor and persistence

I keep seeing this error in the log:

Could not store item 'aeotec_front_closet_sensor' in database with statement 'INSERT INTO Item512 (TIME, VALUE) VALUES(?,?) ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE VALUE=?;': Data truncation: Data too long for column 'Value' at row 1

I have two other Aeotec door sensors and neither of them show this error. None of these devices has an entry in may persistence file (mysql.persist).

I’ve read a post here that suggests it may be data format issue:
https://community.openhab.org/t/mysql-could-not-store-item/3485
So what gives?

They don’t have to be, if they are members of Groups that get persisted.

Thanks for the reply, but none of these sensors are in a group.

So, you don’t want to persist this Item at all? The persistence services are essentially OH1 legacy; they will not pick up in-flight changes. If you have been editing xxx.persist files or Group memberships that are persisted, you will have to restart to effect the changes.
