Thanks, Daniel. That explains it.

But unfortunately, the error happens inside the python script
benchmark.py (in tools/dev/benchmarks/suite1), and I haven't found a
way to avoid it. I've experimented a bit with pre-pending the path
with "\\\\?\\" (which was also suggested at the end of this python
issue: [1]), but it didn't help.

I'll commit the Windows variant of the run script (run.bat) for now
with a maximum "levels" of 25, which means it usually won't exceed the
maximum path length. Maybe someone else can enhance it later (and/or
benchmark.py) to enable benchmarks for even deeper working copies on
Windows ...
