    It seems like a similiar patch has already been applied. Can
    you try the latest CVS version and see it works OK for you?

    Yes, it's the same patch. CVS works for me with some limits
    e.g. full path to file can't be longer than 128 symbols
    (without \\tsclient\drivename part). Anything longer will
    break redirection. I don't know why :-(
    The original patch has the same problem. Good thing is that
    without patch the path to file would be shorter.

    There are some hardcoded values of 255 and 256 still present
    in disk.c. I guess someone needs to examine these.

    I tried the latest cvs. Now the full path to file don't
    limit to 128 symbols. But when a single file or directory
    name in this path exceeds 127 characters then disk
    redirection dies.
