filename too long problem

running rsnapshot for backing up Windows PCs, I'm getting an error message that 
looks like:

rsync: readlink "/Administrator/My Documents/MIT 
(in das) failed: File name too long (91)

I'm using Delta copy on the Windows PC and rsync 2.6.9 on ubuntu 7.10.  I 
suspect I'm getting bit by this bug.

If I am, are there any workarounds?
