I'm using that, which does the trick.

  (require 'uniquify)
  (setq uniquify-buffer-name-style 'post-forward-angle-brackets)

,----[ C-h v uniquify-buffer-name-style RET ]
| uniquify-buffer-name-style is a variable defined in `uniquify.el'.
| Its value is post-forward-angle-brackets
| Original value was nil
| 
| Documentation:
| If non-nil, buffer names are uniquified with parts of directory name.
| The value determines the buffer name style and is one of `forward',
| `reverse', `post-forward', or `post-forward-angle-brackets'.
| For example, files `/foo/bar/mumble/name' and `/baz/quux/mumble/name'
| would have the following buffer names in the various styles:
|   forward        bar/mumble/name  quux/mumble/name
|   reverse        name\mumble\bar  name\mumble\quux
|   post-forward   name|bar/mumble  name|quux/mumble
|   post-forward-angle-brackets   name<bar/mumble>  name<quux/mumble>
|   nil            name  name<2>
| Of course, the "mumble" part may be stripped as well, depending on the setting
| of `uniquify-strip-common-suffix'.
