Our internal bug tracker shows that this issue was addressed in Dec. 2007.

The issue was that we were calling a Windows API to retrieve filepaths and it was returning them in the old 8.3 format. So, provided you always work with your files on Windows this would not affect you, which is obviously not the case for everyone.

I have tested with our current releases to confirm that the issue no longer occurs and it does not happen in 5.5 nor 6.0.
