Description

When opening multiple raster layers
The last filename and a few that followed it were truncated
e.g.
"/mnt/share/mainpc/maps/Non-Rail/Christchurch/1lds/94CLL-92
which should have been
"/mnt/share/mainpc/maps/Non-Rail/Christchurch/1lds/94CLL-92XDP.jpg" and about another 60 files in a set of 540 rasters. Only the first 480 were imported.
This suggests to me there is a path length limit of about 32767 characters on this dialog box.
