Hi Graham,

your issue seems more connected to spaces in paths that to long file names.

Can you tell us :
- what is "tool" (a .bat file ?) that you run from TexPad,
- what is the value of ANT_HOME in your system,
- what is the value of JAVA_HOME
- is CLASSPATH set as an environment variable before you start ant; if 
it is set, can you try running ant without CLASSPATH,
- can you start ant from the command prompt (directly without TextPad 
and your "tool"),
