Long Filename for Stackfile Breaks Save?

I got badly burned today with a stack where I added some characters to
the file such that it became longer than 32 chars on Mac OSX... after
doing quite a bit of data entry, where I had an auto save function set
up and also a save button and was *sure* there was no way to lose work
and clicking in the IDE save menu item brought up the normal save modal
for a few seconds...all appear normal.
Later appears that after quitting the stack, nothing was saved at all!
We noted on the finder a temp file
where the temp file that Rev creates on the fly had a "greeked" file
name. Normally this file appears momentarily and then disappears
I reduced the file name to
and everything started working as normal
Is this a known bug?
