Yes, Apple broke the Firmware again ;-)

The old limit for a Path was 64 chars. For unknown reasons, Apple
changed this to 55 chars.

It's easy to fix:

Just change

in XMLhelper.pm.

After this change, *newly* added Songs should play fine.

I'm going to release GNUpod 0.98.2 in a few minutes. [1]
This Version will include the MAX_PATHLENGTH change.
It also includes a version of 'gnupod_check.pl' with the
new '--fixit' option.

Running 'gnupod_check.pl --fixit' renames files with a long
filename on the ipod into a shorter version.
