limit of 256 characters in pathname

We use rsync on NT (server and client) and we get errors on filenames with
a path that has in total more than 256 characters. This seems to be caused
by a limit in rsync, not in NT. Is there a way to break this limit withuo
having to manually shorten all this filenames?

Thx already!
