Well, there's the quandry. Pathnames can be much longer than 128 bytes
in Windows NT 4, 2000, and XP. But, OFS_MAXPATHNAME in the Win32 API is
defined as 128 bytes. And, OFS_MAXPATHNAME is being used to defined
buffers in dirent.c. This dirent.c was originally written for DOS then
ported (by Microsoft) to OS/2 then NT 3.1.
I think perhaps OFS_MAXPATHNAME isn't the correct thing to be using.
I'm looking into it...
