I have a bug on a site with media library 1.7.2. When the filenames of images are too long (usually when they're in nested folders) there are no thumbnails in the media library. Anyone experienced this issue?

Thanks for any advice..

Tested on the latest 1.8.1 it fails on PathValidation.cs

Basically our client has a lot of nested folders, so the file-names unfortunately add up over 256 (260) characters.

Is there a way around this, short of getting them to reorganise their media folder structure (which is actually a mirror of their taxonomy - which makes sense in a way)..
