Thanks Nicolai, that's great!  I'll merge in your changes.  Which files do I need to look at?

Hi Nicolai,

    I'm a bit concerned that this is creating drift with the "official" Cog source base at  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?

Ok, I removed all of my code again and merged with sqWin32Directory.c and sqWin32FilePrims.c from the official cog source.
I left only pharos additions for the fileattributes (posixpermissions) this should make it easier to merge which the
squeak vm main branch (wrapped with pharo vm ifdefs).

I'll create a push request.

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) :

    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.
