--- Comment #12 from Stefan Liebig <StefanLiebig at web.de> ---
I am currently struggling with this limitation and I wonder how e.g. the JVM
deals with this limitation.
As you probably know when using Java IO this limitation does not exist although
the JVM uses the win32 API.
A little bit of research (google) leads to
And it seems that the JVM internally does the required prefixing with "\\?\" of
path names before calling the win32 API.
