Thanks Knut and everyone for the input.

I will go ahead with the artifacts I posted.  I did the Windows run with 
the bin distribution and saw only DERBY-4201.  I will kick off linux 
now.  One other thing I noticed is that in the tarball that we will 
actually be posting, the lengths do not seem to be greater than 100.  It 
was only in the snapshot build that this was  a problem.  I got no 
errors with tar xvf on SUSE Linux using /bin/tar.  I am not sure why I 
got the @Longlink warnings on mks tar though so will go ahead and post 
that users should use gnu tar, since we have no checks in-place that 
prevent us from exceeding the limit.
