Hi Nicolai,

    I'm a bit concerned that this is creating drift with the "official" Cog source base at http://www.squeakvm.org/svn/squeak/branches/Cog.  Long filename support for win32 was recently added by Marcel Taumel in May of this year.  Are you tracking that?  How can we keep the sources harmonized?

For those who had problems with pharo on windows and github based repositories,
I built a windows vm with support for long paths:

For browsing directories with large paths (FileList or Inspect),
you may need one additional change in the image (But I am not really sure about that) :

DiskStore>>initialize
    super initialize.
    maxFileNameLength := Smalltalk vm maxFilenameLength ifNil: [ 32767 ].


please test and give feedback.

This wasn't as easy as I thought, and I had to make some more changes
for the file permissions (the stat-functions don't work for files with long paths).
Please test other file/folder operations.
