You may want to file a bugrep on this...it may well be a problem.

However, it may be hard for the ant team to fix.

1. windows itself makes a bit of a mess of unc filenames. Try doing a cd 
to one, for example.

2. the java APIs from sun get in the way. its only recently they've 
opened up access to the full length unicode names of the sort 
\\?\server\path

3. it's really hard to test this stuff reliably as part of ant's normal 
unit tests -you need to know hostnames and mount points to do it reliably.
