Long names are effective on our Win2K and beyond Windows clients when
accessing CIFS servers on similar boxes and our mainframes. This is all
running port 445; have not tried it on 139. Older levels of Windows clients
did have problems with names longer than 12 (not 13) characters. Don't
remember if that was a 98 or an NT problem, and I have no idea which service

(Note that none of the above was using jCIFS.)
