I guess this could be the cause:
http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=4403166

Windows NT + on NTFS does indeed support very long (255+) file names, 
but java 1.4 on windows does not.

Either we try to use shorter names or we write somewhere that under 
windows we don't support java 1.4.
