FW: Bug. "File or path name too long"

One more clarification point.
The build error I got indicated that it could not write to a specific class
file. But I suspected that this was due to the "File or path name too long"
problem

Also from a dos window the equivalent command works when I use the dir
command instead of ls.

thanks
derek.
