Long file names in Mac OS X.

Has anyone found a workaround to the long file name bug in Mac OS X?

If I use this script:

on mouseUp
  answer file "Please choose a file:"
  answer it
end mouseUp

And I choose this file:
This_is_longer_than_thirty_two_chars.txt

I get this response:
This_is_longer_than_thirt#4A01D

Is this code on the end that can be re-converted to the original text?

Is there another way to get the true file name?

Many Thanks.
