Long file names

I believe this post I found is related to a problem I'm having with long
files names...I would like to use cwRsync, does my problem suggest this
is still happening and has not been addressed?


However, I have long file name issues using rsync 2.6.6 from a BSD
server to the default Cygwin rsync 2.6.6. Should I (and how do I) apply
this patch? Here is one of the errors I am experiencing...
