That was the whole point of LFN's ... *not* having to give up details about a directory. Why have the ABILITY to have 256 chars in a dir name if you cant *USE* it ?

Hell, lets all go back to 8.3 SFN's !!!

ps: The truncation doesnt only happen on Dir Names > xxx chars, it happens on a short dir name in a long path too. 100 characters is *hardly* a long Full Path to have. And is often completely unavoidable.
