Yes. Apple changed the Limit from 64 chars to 55. Don't ask me why.

I just released GNUpod 0.98.2


This version does not create paths longer than 49 chars.
(Who knows where apple will set the limit in future ;-) )

You can also run 'gnupod_check.pl --fixit' to fixup (shorten)
existing files on the iPod.

(BTW: Apple broke SmartPlaylist support with iPodMini-1.4 ..
      Do them still work with the new Photo-Firmware? )
