Functional area in hierarchy for financial statement is truncated

Per definition infoobject 0FUNC_AREA can contain 16 characters. But 0GLACCEXT does only have space for 12 characters (see

We have functioanal areas with more than 12 characters and in 0GLACCEXT-hierarchy those members are truncated and can't be matched in report.

How can I avoid this behaviour? Have we to adjust the functional areas in R/3?
