Long file names=off, dir name with repetitious char like (50)length. ""Search will not work in that dir ""

Posted: 01-17-2009, 05:04 PM
I have long file names turned off on my system as it helps speed up things.
I don't know if that is involved but I noticed if I create a directory in
vista ultimate sp2 and make the dir name a repetitious char that search
goes brain dead.

example

(1111111111111111111111111111111111111111,)
(dir1.htm)
(dir2.txt)
(dir3.wrd)

If I search for dir2 or *.* or anything it returns nothing

Just a heads up
for those that care.
