Facebook Plugin Error: Data truncated for column 'AssociationHashMethod

I've just installed the latest vanilla on Windows Server 2008 R2 + IIS 7.5 + FastCGI + PHP 5 + MySQL, and I receive the following error when enabling the Facebook plugin.
Data truncated for column 'AssociationHashMethod' at row 1|Gdn_Database|Query|insert GDN_UserAuthenticationProvider 
(AuthenticationSchemeAlias, URL, AssociationSecret, AssociationHashMethod, AuthenticationKey)
values (:AuthenticationSchemeAlias, :URL, :AssociationSecret, :AssociationHashMethod, :AuthenticationKey)
Update: there seems to be an issue with the twitter plugin also. No error, it just doesn't enable.

    Same for me.. Has this been resolved yet? I get the same error for the Twitter login addon, too.

    It looks as if you all are running with a more strict version of MySQL. I've figured out how to make my dev environment more strict and pushed a fix for this bug.

    Todd, any suggestions how we can resolve above error? I am getting the same error and I can't change MYSQL Strict mode because I have Vanilla Forum hosted on a hosting provider's server.

    Thank you.
