Man, you have long file names! Indeed, this is a bug. :bugconfirmed:

I've tried to find out about the correct length of file names and simply tried renaming in XnView browser. I've entered as many characters as possible and then clicked on another file to confirm. But instead of renaming the file an error message is shown. Another bug. :bugconfirmed:

Then I've tried in MS Explorer. There, only 217 characters can be entered. Not sure what the right limit is, but 59 characters is surely not enough...
