Wow, nice system! What do you mean by "a new head"?

While I agree with your comments ref 8.3, we use quite a few paths longer than 8 characters without problems (although I'm still on XP but use Win7 at home). I suspect that is not the problem.

Note that 1.7.3 (Dec 2011) is now 6 revisions out of date, can you try again with 1.7.9 (30th August 2012) and see if it still fails?
