------- Additional Comments From ant@kruithof.xs4all.nl  2005-03-20 10:36 -------
I get this problem once the inner class absolute filename (including drive
letter) gets over 259 characters. (By creating inner classes till I got to the
limit where the inner class was not included in the jar file anymore)
(On windows XP)

I connot imagine that the relative pathname is 170 characters long and the
absolute path name is 174 long. this would mean that the files are stored in
c:\\xxx, which would be an invalid name. (4 characters to make something
absolute does not leave place for a directory name on windows.), though maybe
\\a\ where a is a hostname would be possible, but unlikely. Again, please verify
the absolute length of the filename of the class, from the drive letter onward

so if the project is in 
c:\some\project\name\classes\
and the file name inluding the directories for the package name would be 170
characters long, the absolute filename is 199 characters long.

On windows various limitations exist on size of file, directory,
file+directory+drive, some artificial some not. Consensus seems to be among
windows applications the sum should not exeed 259 characters (it is for instance
also not possible to rename a file using explorer once the path name gets longer).
