Looks like this is a problem with all of the Directory.GetFiles()/GetDirectories()/GetFileSystemEntries() methods that I use in PathLengthChecker, as documented at http://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/512171/. There is a work around for it though that I intend on implementing http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9746538/fastest-safest-file-finding-parsing/9758932#9758932.
