Not *strictly* a "filename length" issue, but one thing I (think I) recall encountering a while back was an (88-character?) upper limit on the length of the full pathname of a mount point. So that could prove ... annoying (if I actually recall correctly, and the situation has not changed since). Peace, David H.
