Renaming folder hangs PDM

I'm having trouble renaming a folder in PDM - after I type in the new name and hit enter, Windows Explorers freezes, and doesn't respond until it's restarted.  Has anyone else seen this?  I'm doing it with the admin account, which has all permissions, and all of the files in the folder are checked in.


I suspect it might have something to do with the length of the filenames in the folder.  I tried 'Get Latest Version' on the folder, and got a 'The path is too long' error. I believe this has something to do with the assemblies with virtual components in the folder.  The default names when you make components virtual get very long fast and eat up the 256 Windows character limit for path + filename.
