This is the rsync version I am using.

rsync  version 2.5.5  protocol version 26

I have a file with a looooong name which I rsync from PC1 to PC2. (redhat-9)
I am getting the following error.

mkstemp fileStore/18/f26012/2006/Apr/date-23/61000000291587/inline/.laidlaw
discordant appetite banjo crankcase voracious selfadjoint corroborate

term deputation uracil dough .gif.arQtMB failed: File name too long
rsync error: partial transfer (code 23) at main.c(578)

Any workarounds?? Should I move to a later version??
