Alter Field character limit incorrect

I'm having trouble with the Alter Field  Data Management tool -- it will not allow me to create a field name longer than 31 characters. The table I'm using is a File Geodatabase table, where the character limit on field names is 64 characters.

 

When importing and creating tables, I'm allowed to have field names (and aliases) that are longer than 31 characters, but when I try to alter the field name, this restriction is placed.

 

Can't seem to find information on this anywhere.
