I've already submitted this as a bug already,
(#4206 in case you want to vote)

But rather urgently need a work around.

Key Ray sent one before for drag and drop.. some PosIx thing..
And I'm off to see if I find and timplement that for answer folder.
which is returning hashed strings for long folder names on OSX.



Any solutions?


p.s. (mini rant) *really* should get fixed in 2.7.5. Imagine a seasoned 
or naive
new user coming and finding this... "Oh my....."
