No, this problem has not been fixed on Mac OS X.
This is no reason the give up on a project. You could use AppleScript
on Mac OS X and shortFilePath() on Windows. Replacing so many routines
with AppleScript is no fun, but it is possible. On Windows, it is just
a sight inconvenience.
Has this bug been reported? Which number does it have?
